Westminster College, Andrew J. McKelvey Campus Center
New Wilmington, Pennsylvania


New construction of a 3-story 42,000 square foot infill structure to tie two existing campus facilities into one unified Campus Center.  Major structural challenge involved dealing with relatively low floor to floor heights in the adjacent buildings which did not perfectly align, requiring structural elevation changes at numerous locations.  Other interesting structural challenges included curved architectural geometry and a curved monumental stair at the center of the addition that was designed by TSE.
