The floor system consists of 8” hollow-core precast concrete planks with a 3” concrete topping. Roof planks are 8” un-topped hollow-core except at the mechanical penthouse areas where 12” hollow-core planks and 4” of topping are used. The lateral load resisting system consists of concrete shear walls to provide stability against wind and seismic forces. Foundations consist of concrete grade beams framing between concrete drilled piers bearing on bedrock.
Transylvania University New Residence Hall
Transylvania University constructed this new 4-story, 144-bed residence hall as the first phase of a 4 dormitory replacement project. The project is arranged in a fast-track, design-build methodology. After selection and engagement by Owner, site and foundation package permitting is being obtained after only 3 weeks (June 2, 2014) with final full design complete following only an additional 4 weeks.
Morehead State University Andrews Hall
A new, $22.0 M, 4-story, 150,000 sq ft wood framed residence hall.
Kentucky State University Young Hall
This project is a loadbearing precast and masonry wall system utilizing precast concrete hollow-core plank floor construction. A steel frame with transfer girders occur at the second floor to achieve large open common rooms at the ground floor.
Midway College Starks Hall Learning Resource Center
A new $3.0 M, 3-story Learning Resource Center consisted of three floors totaling approximately 32,000 sq ft. It is a steel frame structure utilizing composite steel beam construction. The lateral load resisting system for the building utilizes ordinary steel concentrically braced frame.
Cumberland College New Science Building
A $5.3 M, 2-story, 28,000 sq ft steel frame structure with laboratories, classrooms and offices. The building was designed to replicate Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello.
Western Kentucky University - Owensboro
This project is a steel frame structure utilizing composite steel beam construction. The foundation system consists of shallow spread footings on soil. The lateral force resisting system utilizes concentrically braced frames.
GCTC Center for Advanced Manufacturing
A new 3-story, steel frame building with classrooms, laboratories and offices at the Florence Campus of Gateway Community College.
ECTC Postsecondary Education Phase II
This project consisted of three floors totaling approximately 82,000 sq ft to infill and bridge between two existing buildings on campus. It is a steel frame structure utilizing composite steel beam construction. A full story deep truss spans approximately 90 ft to support the third floor and roof while providing column free space to a tiered classroom below.
Madisonville CTC Technology Center
A new $16.0 M, 2-story,76,000 sq ft laboratory and classroom building with steel frame and lateral force resisting system of concentrically braced frames.
Mary Todd Elementary School
A 1-story, 4,300 sq ft Media Center and Vestibule addition and renovation of the existing 64,000 sq ft gymnasium, classrooms, administration offices and cafeteria. It is a load-bearing masonry wall structure with steel joists and roof deck. The project includes a new 2-story entry structure.
Liberty Elementary School - Lexington, KY
The project consisted of a new $11.4 M, 1-story with mezzanines, 81,000 sq ft elementary school. The facility uses load-bearing concrete masonry walls and a partial steel frame to support a steel joist roof structure. The lateral resisting building system utilizes ordinary reinforced masonry shear walls.
Garrett Morgan Elementary
A $15.0 M, 73,000 sq ft new elementary school constructed for Fayette County Public Schools. Typical structure consists of metal deck roof system spanning to steel joists supported by load bearing masonry walls. At each classroom wing, the center corridor is capped with a concrete slab above ceiling level to create a “hardened” corridor. Exposed acoustical roof deck is utilized in the cafeteria, gym, and media center spaces. Foundations for the structure consist of soil bearing spread footings and continuous strip footings.
Harlan High School - Harlan, Kentucky
New $32 M, 3-story, 265,000 sq ft facility with load-bearing concrete masonry wall, steel frame, and precast hollow-core plank and double tee floor structure. Facility includes classrooms, offices, laboratories, library, auditorium and gymnasium.
Fairview High School
A $7.5 M 16,000 sf renovation and 11,170 sf addition to the existing High School. The project included a phased implementation to consolidate the middle and high school, relocate the media center to the cafeteria, and convert the administration area to the new cafeteria. The exchange took advantage of location and structure heights to increase natural light and flexibility. The existing facility had both high-volume, exposed-structure and low-volume with ceilings requiring strict coordination between engineering disciplines.
The addition utilized masonry bearing walls, a conventional steel frame, and wood fiber acoustical deck. Certain foundation and structural elements utilized architectural concrete with smooth formed and rubbed finish.
Knox Central High School - Barbourville, KY
The classroom and office wings utilize composite steel beams at the second floor and steel joists for the roof bearing on concrete masonry walls. The use of composite beams instead of the more traditional steel joist construction is estimated to save more than $50,000 in structure costs and will provide a structure which exhibits less vibrations under foot traffic.
