A new facility for a thriving junior high and high school

Tharpe Engineering Group provided structural design services for Savannah Classical Academy's new high school wing. The structure will occupy a narrow lot adjacent to the existing gymnasium. Site conditions necessitated the use of augered cast-in-place concrete pile foundations.

The primary structural system consists of structural steel and non-composite concrete floor and roof systems. As this building is classified as a category III structure, special seismic detailing of braced frames and reinforced concrete masonry shear walls was required.
