This project pertained to the design of a technical education building on the campus of Spokane Community College (SCC). As the school’s technical programs have grown, there has been an increasing need for additional classroom and lab facilities. Based on the architectural plans we were provided by Integrus Architecture, the building will be two stories with a clearstory on the roof. The first floor will house classrooms and laboratories, and the second floor will contain offices and more classrooms. The goal of our project is to calculate all internal and external loads and design the structural system necessary to withstand the applied loadings. Additionally, we designed the footings and performed detailing on various connections throughout the structure.
