Oregon State University’s McAlexander Field House

Winner of 2011 NIRSA Outstanding Sports Facilities of the year, was a historical building completed in 1912 as an armory and parade house for the Army’s officer’s corps.It was woefully inadequate in meeting the code requirements for the planned improvements. Code Unlimited was the code consultant for the entire duration of the project. We demonstrated that the historical construction was of better quality than assumed and that the partial second floor is actually a mezzanine, from a code perspective. This addressed many global problems and made the rest of the issues easy to manage with some creativity. Our established relationships with the local jurisdiction, owner’s project manager, and the design team were a key in building consensus and developing pragmatic solutions that reinvigorated this iconic building on the OSU campus.
