Proposed: Three building auction complex, with hotel on 156 acres South of Indianapolis, to serve the 5- state area of all auction needs
West, left hand elevation, and plan view of the car auction house, showing the bleachers, and supports, also one half of the roof structure.
The detail still has to be put into working drawings. We are just trying to give an overall view of the conception of the car auction house.
Shown is the cut B B on this half of the drawing, with the cut in the middle of the bleachers to help define the layout to a better extent. Both sides of the arenas are identical in design and will help in construction. The seats are shown in their location and are bolted to the platform floor. The cool air register opening is under each seat back of the heels of the person sitting down. In this manner of air circulation, there will be no drafts because of the low volume movement of air. The air openings under each seat will be made when the seat platform is cast.
The design of the cool air will consist of a 6' galvanized corrugated pipe buried in the ground 8' around the car auction house, with a low volume fan supplying a 10# VPM. The entry to the 6' corrugated pipe will be from the 50' tunnel side wall and exit into the air chamber under the bleachers. The pipe will consist of four different sections two North sections and two South sections all entering from the tunnel wall sides and exiting into the bleachers air chamber. The ground temperature year round is about 54 degrees. If there is no humidity then a water pipe under 120# air pressure will supply a fine mist to cool the air at the fan.
There will be 48 each 3311/2 long 4 thick concrete seat platforms required for each bleacher as detailed in the drawings. These platforms will rest on 4 each bleachers supports, and on each end metal supports cast into the concrete wall and welded to the bleacher platforms.
The concrete supports are evenly spaced to receive the 3311/2 cast concrete platforms. The nuts to hold down the seats will be cast in the platform so if a seat has to be removed there will be no bolts protruding to cause a safety hazard. There will be at least 12+ free walking space in front of each seat for easy access in and out of the bleacher seats. The seats will be designed so that your heels and leg could be brought back under the seat to give more walking room for people exiting the row of seats. The back of the seats will be 2 below the top of the head, and the wing back sides will protrude forward 10, and will have a 2 speaker built in on each side next to the ear.
As people exit and enter in front of the seats they will not interfere or bump into the persons head on the lower side, because the height of the back of the seat will be high enough to resist the bump.
The bridge floor from the hotel and mall area will be a smooth trowel concrete finish. No designs will be built into the floor because of the weather conditions that would cause cracking around the designs. Floor areas in the patio enclosed rooms will have designs with Greek key border as well as medallion in the center of the room. Lighting sconces at each column in the Baroque style all around the room will give a subdued affect.
The roof structure will consist of 2 steel tubing spanning 50and rest on a 6 poured in place wall capped with a 6 steel U channel. The 2 steel tubing will be braced appropriately to handle the span and with the height of the truss in the center to be 8, with a floor to ceiling of 116'' from the walkway around the bleachers to the bottom of the truss. Trusses will be built in 25 x 50 sections with the fiberglass installed as well as the solar panels, and then lifted into place. This should bring in enough light for the daylight hours.
Strip florescent lighting under the purlins will not interfere with the day light during the day.
This is the second part, of a four part series about what is expected in the future by these writers.
