St. Dominic Monsignor Crowe Community CenterPanama City Beach, FL

The Saint Dominic Monsignor Crowe Community Center is a multi-purpose community center with offices and classrooms, kitchen, Parrish hall and a gymnasium located in Panama City Beach, FL. The building has four roofs that are framed with structural steel and steel bar joists supporting a metal deck. The Parrish Hall utilizes long-span glue laminated timber beams supporting a timber deck to clear span the open space. The building is expected to be supported on shallow foundations, though deep foundations are being explored due to differential settlement concerns.
