For the first time, all students from freshmen to doctoral candidates are united academically in one building. The 4-story, 48,312 SF greenfield structure offers much needed academic classroom and administrative spaces to support six core departments and a center for coordinating their on-line curriculum. The facility has a center common core area with atrium and several building wings. The complex building geometry combined with office and classroom layout presented a challenge for column placement for this building. Design systems included structural steel floor and roof framing, structural steel moment frames and concrete shallow foundation.
