Project Description: "The Structural Perspective of the OSU North Residential District Transformation"

The North Residential District Transformation (NRDT) at The Ohio State University added a total of 3,200 new beds along with a new dining facility and an athletic facility. The project included eight new residential buildings, a dining and event building, an athletic building and low rise additions to three existing towers in the district. The project added 1.1 million square feet of space to the district.

If your construction cost was approximately $305 million. The residence halls are cast-in-place concrete, while the remaining structures are structural steel (recreation, banquet and tower additions). Soil conditions vary across the site with rock elevations ranging from five feet below grade to nearly 100 feet. This resulted in spread footings being supported on rock or on rammed aggregate piers.

The presentation will discuss the various aspects of the project from a structural perspective. Topics will include: working in a studio environment, collaboration with numerous consultants, development of structural systems, the delivery system (Design/Build), and BIM
