Project Details

The Central High School project presented the team with a unique opportunity to build a new school while honoring the architectural history of the campus. A multi-story classroom building was designed to reflect the features of the original Lanier Senior High School Building, which was destroyed by fire in 1967. The project also included the cafeteria, administration, auditorium, arts, and indoor sports facilities for the campus. In general, the structural systems consisted of steel framed structures supporting composite steel floor systems and/or steel joist roof systems. The gymnasium roof framing is comprised of structural steel bow string roof trusses supporting cementitious roof decking (pictured). All structures were laterally braced against wind and seismic loads with concrete masonry shear walls. Structural provisions were also made for the high parapets, the filming studio and broadcast booth, the fire separations, as well as auditorium, gymnasium, mechanical, and electrical equipment.
