This 375,000 ft² facility will house the School of Creative Arts and includes a four-story mass timber student residence above a four-story concrete podium. The project includes glulam columns and beams, CLT floor and roof panels, and CLT shear walls.
Through an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) process, Entuitive has worked with the contractors from the earliest stages of the design. The complete structural design of the mass timber, including connections, remained in Entuitive’s scope as the structural engineer of record for the project. By collaborating closely with the mass timber fabricator and installer, the design was optimized for both material efficiency and speed and ease of erection on site. Connections were designed to accommodate fasteners from multiple manufacturers to avoid delays associated with pandemic-related supply chain problems
