Old Senior HAll
The Ray Group
Constructed in 1934, the "Old Senior Hall" building was built with a structural steel frame, concrete and gypsteel floors and roof, and a reinforced concrete foundation. The exterior walls were built using a brick masonry façade over a clay tile backup with limestone sills, coping, and accents. Active corrosion of main structural members was discovered in the late 1990's, and a plan was developed to renovate the building to address structural concerns. Atkinson - Noland conducted a full exterior condition survey, including use of nondestructive tests to identify the extent of steel corrosion, evaluate masonry performance, and identify potential repair items. Results of this study were used to plan repairs and any necessary strengthening.
