Model

Completed in 2019, the project is currently the largest cross-laminated timber (CLT) building in the United States.  Setting precedence among universities, the U of A is the first to complete a large-scale mass timber residence hall and living learning setting.

Project

The series of interconnected buildings includes not only living suites and pods primarily for sophomores, with a total of 708 beds, but also includes vibrant space for dining facilities, classrooms, administrative offices, faculty housing, and much more.

The series of interconnected buildings in serpentine configuration is aimed at providing additional communal outdoor spaces in contrast to traditional campus housing. Additionally, the structure’s advanced timber technologies, with the use of CLT panels and glulam members, was an important sustainability proposal to significantly reduce the building’s carbon footprint.

The project has won numerous awards to date, including:

  • AIA St Louis Design Award 2019, Unbuilt Category: Distinguished Award
  • Wood Design & Building Honor Award, 2020
  • WoodWorks Multi-Family Wood Design Award, 2020

Structure

The engineers of Equilibrium Consulting Inc. modeled, analyzed, and designed the main components of the building using RFEM.  For the lateral wind analysis, the three wings of the building were taken into consideration independently. The individual wings are composed of reinforced concrete cores to which glulam beams and columns are connected.

As a joint collaboration between Equilibirum Consulting Inc. and the Austrian company binderholz Group, the CLT floors and CLT post-and-beam configurations were designed. The glulam beams, columns, and trusses were analyzed individually as simply supported elements. The engineers of Equlibrium utilized RFEM’s add-on modules RF-TIMBER AWC and RF-LAMINATE for the design according to the AWC/NDS standard.

The steel hangers for the glulam beam-to-column connections were analyzed using the beam-on-elastic-foundation approach. The screws were idealized with linear elastic spring elements.
