Longspan steel joists on top of long structural trusses frame the roof of this multi-purpose arena, home of the National Hockey League’s New York Islanders. The facility will host around 150 events annually. The structural system needed to limit the roof deflection, while also keeping the roof structure as light as possible. The joists were provided with a special zinc rich primer, and the joist deliveries were coordinated to go directly “to hook” due to the congested jobsite.
