Design-Build Student Housing – California State University Bakersfield

Englekirk adds another contribution to higher education to our portfolio. Check out the details of the design-build student housing development at California State University Bakersfield designed by Steinberg Architects.

Located on the south side of campus, the new student housing complex consists of three 4-story buildings totaling 130,000 square feet. Here are some interesting highlights: The lateral load resisting system consists of wood structural panel shear walls and floor diaphragms. The gravity system includes pre-fabricated floor and roof wood trusses and wood walls and posts. Key to the project is the cost-effectiveness of the structural system which integrates the floor and roof truss construction with the wall system to achieve efficiency in both cost and schedule. In addition, the open web floor framing enables robust and flexible design for the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. The one-story common building has a 12 to 20 feet high roof with a —clerestory between the high and low roofs, including large span roof trusses and architectural concrete columns at the front of the building.
