East Lansing, Michigan – 225 Tons
New Coach – New Motto – New Football Building – Douglas Steel was selected by Barton Malow Company and Michigan State University to be their Structural Steel Trade Manager of choice for the new Duffy Daugherty Football Building being built adjacent to the existing football practice facility across the street from Spartan Stadium.
This new 25,000 square foot addition will house separate meeting rooms for all of the various football positions on the ground level and also have a sizable exhibit space to display photos and mementos of all of the proud moments in Spartan football history. Keeping with the new motto “We are one”, the second floor will be utilized for the new coach’s office as well as all of the assistant coaches responsible for putting a winning team on the field.
A significant portion of the steel will be left architecturally exposed including several columns with uniquely shaped holes in the webs and many beams with round holes in their web which will remain exposed in the skylight corridor.
