Hogue Hall is Central Washington University’s (CWU) primary engineering and technology classroom building. Originally built in the early 1970s, the two-story concrete and masonry structure received a major modernization that more than doubled its size to consolidate its programs and help train students for 21st-century careers. Structurally, the building necessitated designing for a variety of spaces, including flexible high bay lab space with an overhead crane for integrated projects, and rooftop lab space for testing of wind and solar technologies. We also provided structural designs for a future data center. Site work began with an early package to relocate several utilities to allow the project to take advantage of available stimulus funds. This early work involved tying both the existing hall and addition into the University’s central plant for power and taking advantage of a steam tunnel running beneath the campus for heating and cooling.
