Combined High School & Youth Leadership Center


Minneapolis, Minnesota

The Cristo Rey Jesuit High School and Colin Powell Youth Leadership Center wanted to construct a new, combined facility that would include an auditorium, conference center, theater, classrooms, learning labs, a chapel and basketball courts.

Contractor Ryan Companies US, Inc. and engineer Erickson Roed & Associates, Inc. utilized STRUX 90/40 to reinforce the state-of-the-art concrete floor. With new regulatory approvals, the combined facility was one of the first applications nationwide of STRUX 90/40 in elevated concrete and steel composite decks. This eliminated the need for welded wire mesh reinforcement and helped maximize crack control and durability.
