Construction continues for Roseville Area School on the new $38 million Fairview Community Center in Roseville, Minnesota. The 108,000-square-foot education center features a new pool and basketball court, multiple classrooms, kitchen with two dining rooms, locker rooms and offices. A playground will be located on the west side of the building with a bus drop-off at the front of the building.
The project has an architectural precast exterior façade with metal panels and a steel structure with composite structural concrete floors. The current education center has two buildings that will be demolished after the new two-story structural steel building is built. When the existing buildings are demolished a new parking lot will be put in its place.
Wells provided more than 40,000 sq. ft. of architectural and solid wall panels along with double tees. The wall panels for this project had multiple design finishes and pigments, including polish, waterwash, acid etch and sandblast. The wall panels used throughout the building are load bearing and insulated for an R value of 18. The Fairview Community Center demonstrates custom features of high quality architectural precast concrete and the strength of structural precast concrete.
The building of this facility provides a gathering place for the entire community; by producing it with precast, it is low maintenance and carries a longevity that far exceeds other building materials. Precast is also weather and fire resistant providing a safe, beautiful and worry-free environment the City of Roseville can be proud of for generations.
