A project completed by Brookfield, Wisconsin-based raSmith‘s cold-formed structural engineers was recently awarded a Design Excellence Award from the Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute.
The Lexington Convention Center in Lexington, Kentucky, received first place in the municipal/services awards category.
The project was a renovation and addition to the existing convention center space. Upon completion, the convention center will have about 100,000 square feet of exhibit space, 24,000 square feet of restroom space, 29,000 square feet of meeting space and 44,000 square feet of flexible space.
raSmith designed the exterior cold-formed steel framing for this project that features a structural steel primary framing system with some exterior precast wall panels.
