Canam’s services were selected for the structural steel supply and Reveal Series steel deck for the Riverdale Country School Aquatic Center, called Natatorium, located on a campus in the Bronx, New York.

This new 15,000 ft.2 (1,394 m2) Aquatic Center will include a state-of-the-art six-corridor competition pool, locker rooms and an area for visitors. The opening is scheduled for September 2017.

A corrosion resistant aesthetic ceiling

Above the pool, six spliced long-span joists will be visible. These 64 ft. (19.5 m) long joists were primed prior to delivery to the job site with two coats of epoxy paint, specially designed for a damp, corrosion-resistant environment. The Reveal Series acoustic deck, to be installed above the pool to complete the ceiling finish, has poly-encapsulated batts to minimize the echo. Like the joists, it has been primed at the plant with two coats of the same epoxy paint, for a complete protection of the ceiling.

Canam’s services were also selected for Reveal Series steel deck for the Riverdale Country School (Upper Learning Building) located on the same campus.
