South Texas Sport Court was brought into the project as the building’s steel frame was being erected. At that time we had already installed Sport Court® high gloss gym flooring at another SST campus in San Antonio and at two campuses in Corpus Christi. Having this prior experience, we were able to make gym specific product recommendations to Matthew Sawina, Baxter’s project manager.
Our on site activities began in late 2019, as the campus was near completion. As with many other new construction projects, we provided the overhead basketball goals and volleyball system from Gared Sports, the wall pads, and gym flooring.
The basketball goals chosen for this project were Gared Sports ceiling suspended forward folding systems with 6 foot glass backboards, breakaway collegiate rims, and electric height adjusters. The two basketball goals and the wall pads were installed while other trades were wrapping up their work in the gym.
The School of Science and Technology Alamo chose Sport Court® Response High Gloss Maple Select gym flooring. Unlike all other gym floors, Sport Court® Response provides lateral energy shock absorption, to reduce injuries and fatigue. Not only is this the safest gym floor in the world, it also has lower install costs and lower life cycle costs when compared to other gym floors.
The gym flooring and volleyball sleeves were the last items to go into the gym. In fact, with such a tight construction schedule, we were finishing up minor details as the teachers and staff were moving into the new campus.
