Galaxy Theatre

Chatham, Ontario, Canada

This building consists of a structural steel shell (exterior) with precast concrete panels. The interior is also structural steel with light-weight steel framing for the bleachers. SWS Engineering has developed many unique structural details for the bleachers to address vibration, sound, and constructability issues, which were used on this project. In addition, this theatre was built on a site with poor soils and steel tube piles were required to support the structure and prevent excessive movements.
