Sitting directly across from the student union, the Boise State Honors College has its first full-fledged home after nearly 40 years of honors programming. Lochsa provided structural engineering services for the new building which offers a variety of living and learning facilities, including dining areas, classrooms, study spaces and housing for 300 honors students.
Completed in 2015, this project entailed the design and creation of a new library and learning commons that incorporated the structure of an existing building, providing our engineers with an exciting set of challenges.
The CUNY Advanced Science Research Center focuses on five dynamic fields of applied science: Nanoscience, Photonics, Structural Biology, Neuroscience, and Environmental Sciences. Through its state-of-the-art architectural design, the center mirrors a distinctly collaborative culture.
Lochsa Engineering provided the following engineering and design elements for this project: A mixture of CMU bearing/shear walls, steel columns, steel beams, steel girders, light gauge shear/bearing walls, light gauge roof joists, concrete pad and strip footings. The majority of the building is 2 stories, with an elevated mechanical hallway system and a gymnasium.
The University of Wyoming’s Energy Innovation Center (EIC) opened in December 2012 to support the University of Wyoming (UW) and the School of Energy Resources (SER) in achieving the mission of positioning Wyoming as a global leader in energy education, research and outreach. This state-of-the-art research and collaboration facility, includes 27,300 net square feet of highly technical research
Lochsa Engineering provided structural wall elevations and details for the exterior light gauge steel stud framing and provided structural plans and details for a wood framed trellis located on the second floor just west of the second floor conference room.
