CBU Gordon and Jill Bourns College of Engineering


Walter P Moore is providing structural engineering services for the new School of Engineering building at California Baptist University (CBU). The new building is approximately 100,000 SF, consisting of three stories plus an occupied roof. Once complete, the new building will include several classrooms and labs, a 200-seat lecture hall, a café and lounge, several conference rooms, faculty offices, and a rooftop solar lab. The project also includes a new Campus Central Plant.

This building is an important addition to the growing CBU campus and will house a variety of emerging research and teaching activities for the college of engineering. To provide facilitate a speedy and efficient erection sequence during construction, we utilized a special steel moment frame with ConXTech connections for the building's lateral system. This pivotal work was recognized by both the owner and general contractor as adding value to the design and the project as a whole.
