Penn State West 2 Engineering Building
Kinsley Steel fabricated and erected 1,260 tons of structural steel for a four-story plus basement, 105,000-square-foot engineering research and teaching facility. This is our first project that includes installing Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) decking.
Steel detailing began in October and fabrication started in December. The main structural steel erection started in April and was completed by the end of June 2021. The project’s final completion is slated for August 2022.
The new building, which has a goal of obtaining LEED Gold certification, will be used as flexible classrooms, multi-use design studios, “cornerstone to capstone” maker spaces, a high-bay research lab, faculty offices and research cores to benefit all College of Engineering disciplines.
