Nicoloff Detailing Project Featured on Cover of Structure Magazine
Washington University in St. Louis recently expanded its Olin Business School on the Danforth Campus. The project included construction of two new buildings — Knight Hall and Bauer Hall — that are united by a soaring, three-story glass atrium.
The atrium roof is supported by two elliptical pipe trusses, with one part a rolled roof and the lower part a sloped roof, all attaching to the elliptical trusses.
Nicoloff Detailing of Edwardsville, Illinois, detailed the atrium roof, wall and curved stairs of the atrium using SDS/2.
To read more about this unique atrium roof structure, check out the August 2014 issue of Structure magazine.
