Lower Columbia College Health & Science Building


The Lower Columbia College Health and Science Building delivers a new 70,000 square-foot, three-story building, consisting of instructional class rooms, lecture halls, and lab space. To achieve strict vibration criteria for sensitive lab equipment, PCS Structural Solutions designed a concrete pan joist system that is in step with the lab space layout module. Deep transfer girders provide a wide bay lecture hall, while supporting an outdoor accessible plaza above. Structural steel framed canopies and perimeter columns compliment curtain wall exterior and expressive roof forms.
