Good Hall Structural Engineering & Construction Administration
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 code-based design of three-story, steel framed entry addition for Good Hall, including below grade basement level and full height elevator.
Foundations were designed and analyzed to address concerns with expansive soils identified at site. The addition included composite concrete deck over steel framing. Due to large window openings and limited clearance for traditional steel cross bracing, custom truss style lateral braces were designed to distribute and resist lateral loading. The existing structure was wood stud framed; the addition was designed as an independent structure.
