Civil 10 - GU Structural Assessment

Student Team: Mariana Brandao, Lisha Sosa, Aaron Lee, John Strub
Advisors: Josh Comfort, Andrea Hougen
Sponsoring Organization: DCI Engineering
Liaison: Josh Comfort

Our project is to complete the structural assessments of two of Gonzaga University’s existing buildings, DeSmet Hall and the Crosby Student Center. Our project scope included a feasibility study of multiple proposed changes to the buildings. As a team, we analyzed DeSmet Hall and Crosby Student Center with a Tier 1 Seismic Evaluation, identifying both existing and potential deficiencies within the structural systems of the buildings while offering the client recommendations of rehabilitation. We accomplished these studies through the use of current codes and structural calculations to determine if the proposed changes could be applied to the buildings while maintaining a life safety priority.
