K-State Engineering Building Phase IV

Manhattan
Kansas

As Kansas State University’s College of Engineering continues grow and is anticipated to growth projects, there was a need to provide dedicated space for students, alumni and visitors, and other areas for student organizations, and student recruitment and retention activities. The new Engineering Building Phase IV will provide this much needed space.

Walter P Moore is providing structural design services for the Engineering Building Phase IV. As a campus focal point, the building will house structures testing and strong wall laboratories. The floor structure for the lab is being designed for 100 kip anchor points spaced at 3’-0” on center and the wall design capacity will include 70 kip anchor points spaced at 3’-0” on center in each direction. Additionally, the design includes a 5-ton bridge crane above the lab space to facilitate the movement of test specimens and loading frames.
