Stuckeman Family Building, The Pennsylvania State University
WBCM provided structural engineering services for a four-story, 110,000-square-foot architecture classroom building adjacent to the Palmer Museum of Art. The Stuckeman Family Building was the first new building Penn State designed to meet the US Green Building Council’s criteria for certification as sustainable architecture. It was designed and constructed to pursue LEED Gold certification.
The structure consists of composite steel beam and columns with 94 percent recycled content and is supported on a mini-pile deep foundation system. The exterior is comprised of brick, recycled copper, and low-energy glass.
