The San Antonio Spurs’ new training and practice facility, which is 140,000 SF in size, is ranked among the best athletic complexes in all of professional sports. A number of practice courts, departments for rehabilitation and training, cafeterias, lap pools, hot and cold plunge pools, player parking garages, retail centers, coaching offices, and locker rooms, media rooms on the third floor, outdoor gardens/rest areas, and a weight room specifically designed for the basketball team are all included in the cutting-edge athletic campus. Parties to watch the Spurs game and other events take place at the event plaza.
The Rock at La Cantera is a sizable site that was built out in multiple phases, the first of which was this new training facility. Aside from the Spurs facility, the property will also house a restaurant, a hotel, a multi-story office structure, parking garages, a sports medicine “human performance” center, and a medical office building.
Insight into the Mass Timber Building and Cross-Laminated Timber Decking
The three-story mass timber structure contains substantial timber frames and decks. American Laminators manufactured the glulam columns and beams that were sent from Oregon. Some of the longest beams, measuring 130 feet in length, are situated above the court. The wood decking, also known as CLT (cross laminated timber), was imported from the Montana-based company Smartlam. The majority of the timber members are composed of Sitka Spruce and Douglas Fir. This project is one of the largest mass-timber sporting facilities in the country.
