Ellis Hall Structural Design
Juniata College, Huntington, PA
Stahl Sheaffer provided structural engineering and construction administration services for three separate building addition projects on the campus of Juniata College in Huntingdon, PA.
The projects included a two-story steel framed addition with an elevator to the entry of Ellis Hall. The structural framing laterally braced the addition by tying into the existing steel framing of Ellis Hall as well as steel moment frames.
The second project was a three-story steel framed addition with a new elevator and basement level. The addition consisted of composite metal floor deck and laterally braced frames to allow the addition to stand independent of the existing structure.
The third structure is a two-story entry addition to the Brumbaugh Academic Center. The new steel framing and composite metal floor deck was constructed to match the existing curved radius of the existing building façade and incorporates new full height glass storefronts and a second level balcony and seating area.
