The Details

Stewart performed structural engineering services on the Student Center, which is located at the physical center of the ECSU campus. It is also located near Bedell Cafeteria, University Suites, and the Commuter Center. The three-story, 30,000-square-foot building includes student study space, recreational space, meeting space, retail space, and food service space.

The building is supported on shallow foundations with a four inch slab on grade. The superstructure consists of conventional composite steel construction. The elevated floors are a 51/4” composite slab on composite deck supported by structural steel beams and columns. The roof consists of structural steel bar joists and structural steel beams with a 1.5” metal deck. The lateral resisting system for the building consists of concentrically braced steel frames collecting the shear from the roof and floor diaphragms.
