Four-story concrete construction An addition to existing science building


  • 43,000 square feet
  • Augercast pile foundation system

This new facility is an addition to the existing science building. The new building is a fourstory, 43,000-square-foot structure that will be used for laboratories connected to the existing building with a link. A one-way concrete joist frame was selected because it will be exposed and floor elevations shall match the existing building. The concrete construction also provides a stiff structure to limit vibration for sensitive equipment. An auger-cast pile foundation system was selected because of the varying soil conditions throughout the footprint of the building.
