Frederick Community College Student Services Building 'J'

Frederick, MD

Washington County Free Library Renovation & Expansion

Hagerstown, MD

Located at the intersection of Antietam Street and Potomac Street in downtown Hagerstown, the existing building was constructed in 1965 as a high story reinforced concrete structure with mezzanine. The two-year renovation and expansion will more than double the usable area to over 90,000 square feet and add nearly 12,000 square feet to the existing 16,000 square feet foot print.

Most of the existing structure will remain, though some portions will be removed to accomodate architectural features. New construction will envelop the existing building on three sides. Special considerations include a 54'-0" long two-story steel truss, a two-story large diameter circular stair, and foundations designed to minimize differential settlement between the new and existing structures. Compounding the design challenges, geotechnical investigation revealed a highly variable soil profile consistent with Karst topography.

The project is expected to break ground in November 2010 and should be completed by the end of 2012. Project construction costs are estimated at $24 million.

American Public University System

Charles Town, West Virginia

The American Public University System Administration Building is a four-story office and educational facility in downtown Charles Town, West Virginia. The building is constructed of concrete floors on steel joists, light gauge metal wall and mansard framing, and structural steel moment frames. Special consideration was given to architectural accents, including the pre-cast concrete arch over the front entrance and the four large clocks in each of the gables.

The site is in close proximity to an active rail line. Geotechnical investigation revealed soft soils. The building is supported on a concrete mat foundation to minimize movement and settlement.
