Penn Hills High School
Penn Hills, Pennsylvania

New construction of a 298,000 square foot high school comprised of a two-story classroom wing, multiple high-bay gymnasium spaces, and a high-bay, two-story auditorium. Continuous skylights run throughout the main corridors. The structure utilizes a combination of conventional steel framing, composite steel beam construction, and masonry construction founded on conventional spread footings. One hundred foot long truss girders were used to clear-span the large, open gymnasium and auditorium spaces.
