Blaine County Courthouse Annex

This project is a new 30,000sf, three-story structure. The lower level is a parking structure constructed with cast-in-place concrete walls and concrete slab on grade floor. The upper two levels are general office space. The first floor framing system uses a pre-cast concrete plank and beam design with a concrete topping slab. The second floor framing and roof system use pre-engineered wood joists that are supported by glu-lam or steel beams. The walls were constructed using a reinforced concrete filled insulated block system and the building is supported by a conventional spread concrete footing foundation system. A large 13’x47′ skylight was designed at the center of the building, which allows natural light into both levels of the office space.
