To compliment the adjacent Rodeo Arena, the Seminole Tribe of Florida contracted Signature Structures LLC to build a first class equine facility in the Big Cypress Location. Having first hand knowledge of the Signature quality, the Seminoles knew Signature was the only choice. There were some code concerns that needed some creative layout and design work in the high wind region and Signature supported the architectural review and met all compliance concerns.
Signature presented a 3 structure option to compliment the rodeo pavilion on site. The custom color is representative of the Seminole Nation. Be utilizing three structures the tribe saved additional resources for build out and some finishing touches that highlight the natural beauty of the landscape and layout of the overall facility.
Each structure spans 60’ wide x 150’ long for a total square footage of just under 30,000 square feet. The buildings are outfitted with horse stalls. Careful consideration to cleanliness is evident in the drainage system designed into the foundation. Due to Miami Dade loading requirements to meet 161 mph wind gusts, Signature used the highest grade PVC membrane available on the market. The structures are outfitted with ventilation and air control systems, side access and open ends with rain shield. Signature engineered the steel truss system to accommodate open sides and customized the bracing for multiple access points.
“The Seminoles use Signature for their quality and experience. They have serviced out structures over the years and ensure the steel framework and high quality Ferrari membrane meet our standards of quality. By having Signature perform annual maintenance before and/or after the extreme hurricane seasons we experience, we feel comfortable that our buildings will stand the test of time”
