Working with Thomas Hacker Architects to provide structural design for the renovations to the existing Education and University High buildings and design of a three-story, 65,000-sf, steel education building sitting on top of a new 200 stall concrete parking garage. catena's depth of experience and creativity in design has been beneficial to the team by providing a functional, yet inspiring space through implementation of THA's thoughtful use of material and light in their design. The complex will consist of classrooms, faculty and administrative offices, research "lofts", clinics, and various student spaces and meeting rooms. With construction costs estimated at $34 million, it is scheduled for completion in 2009. catena was selected from an elite short list of structural engineers due to our successful connection with not only Thomas Hacker Architects, and our understanding of their design philosophy, but also due to our strong connection with the owner, for whom our team has delivered many successful and striking projects.
