Spokane Community College’s Student Services Building has outgrown its current facility and requires additional space. The additional space of 25,000 square feet will expand the Student Services Department and provide the school with additional classrooms, administration offices, and space for The Institute for Extended Learning. We designed the structural systems of the building, which include gravity and lateral resisting systems, the foundation, and provided construction drawings and key structural details. The team compared material and design alternatives in order for the project to be cost effective and compatible with the client's needs. Our design methods will conform to current and prevailing building codes and standards to ensure safety and effectiveness during construction and the life of the building.
