Saint Edmond’s Academy in Wilmington, De. Courtesy ABHA Architects.
Thornton Tomasetti provided structural engineering services for the renovation and capital expansion of the Saint Edmond’s Catholic boy’s school, a fixture of the Wilmington community since 1959. Ground was broken in 2005 for an addition and renovation to the middle school, allowing the addition of kindergarten through third grade, construction of a field house, a chapel, science laboratory, and band room.
A 76-foot-span roof of the field house was built using steel bowstring joists. Narrow beams were necessary in several places to accommodate the wall dimensions.
