This $12,500,000 expansion adds over 58,000 square feet to the existing 109,000 square feet of event space at the French Lick Resort in French Lick, Indiana. The expansion design includes 8 breakout rooms and a 22,000 square foot ballroom with three sections to allow multiple configurations. Multiple uses for the Event Center include conventions, meetings, car shows, and trade shows.
Silver Creek Engineering provided all structural design services for the expansion. Our scope included submitting sealed drawings to the state, developing gravity and lateral loads, designing the gravity and lateral resisting systems, producing drawings and specifications, reviewing shop drawings and submittals, and providing construction support and site observations.
The new addition is an L-shaped building that fits between three existing structures: a pre-engineered golf facility, a post-tensioned concrete parking garage, and the steel Event Center building.
