Reserved for transfers and upperclassmen in need of a living option with more independence, the Hillside Dormitory Complex at SUNY Binghamton provides students alternate living arrangements. The two four-story buildings have floors divided into quadrants, with one six-bedroom apartment in each. This superstructure consists of load-bearing masonry walls and precast concrete plank floors.
Structural Engineering services for the design and construction of the new dormitory included preparation of structural drawings and specifications, cost estimating, and construction period services.
To facilitate the construction schedule and availability of construction materials with the appropriate trades, a hollow core concrete plank and reinforced masonry bearing wall system was utilized in the final design.
