Moseley Hall was constructed in 1916 and is a four-story building, with the lowest level partially submerged below grade. It is a classroom building with a double-loaded corridor. The building is approximately 142’x72’ with about 41,000 square feet.
The slabs are a concrete slab/clay tile rib joist system supported by load-bearing masonry walls. The structure was stripped down to its shell and rebuilt with new finishes and mechanical systems. The structure has new openings for an elevator, fume hood exhaust, and ductwork. Existing openings were filled in floors and walls. Steel dunnage was designed for new roof-top mechanical equipment. Some seismic retrofit was required at walls and parapets. SMBH assisted the team in providing structural design for the renovation of the building.
