Redesigning for a Changing Curriculum: Engineering for more space and seismic activity
DCI Engineers provided structural engineering services for this 80,000-sf former vocational training center. The design included a seismic upgrade, a re-support of existing marginal roof structure, and the installation of a second floor. DCI effectively doubled the available square footage and helped maintain responsiveness to new programs at the college. The structural features include; art studios distributed at the perimeter of the building, a large area with a courtyard, exterior kiln, open space for gathering, and a student art gallery.
- Insertion of structurally thin second system to maximize floor-to-floor headroom.
- Seismic upgrade.
- Renovation of existing wood space frame roof structure.
- Exposed structure for an industrial/tech appearance.
- Included new three stop elevator and ramp for accessibility improvements.
