ACCESSING ATLANTIC CITY

The new Atlantic City (N.J.) Convention Center complex includes a rail terminal, a four-story convention facility, and a below-grade 1,600-car garage. The constrained site for the new complex warranted placement of the exhibition space at a higher elevation than the rail terminal, with parking and services placed underground. This article examines the closed-end steel pile foundation, the structural design, and the systems (water, energy, etc.) of the new convention center. The 30-acre site is at the terminus of the Atlantic City Expressway and the rail lines to Atlantic City.
