Boise School District Services Center

This new 35,000 square foot administrative building is made up of a two-story office, large boardroom wing, a two-story lobby space and a third floor mechanical mezzanine. The central core, which include the stairs, elevator, bathrooms and mechanical room is load bearing masonry walls, and serves as the lateral force resisting system. Major beam elements of the building transfer lateral loads to this masonry core, thereby avoiding the need for field welded moment frames or any diagonal bracing. This system provides for a more wide open plan, especially at the second floor and allows a simple and cost effective steel post and beam design for the floor and roof framing.
