Structural Gymnastics in the Transportation Center

The November 2021 cover story of Structure magazine features the “structural gymnastics” at Pima Community College.

An eight-and-a-half-foot wide skylight runs the length of the high volume work bay

The project includes a total of 27 work bays, including spaces for testing and diagnosis of electric vehicles, faculty offices, classrooms, a dynamometer room, equipment storage, and a large public entry. The unique utility of the building governed its placement, such as the clearance necessary for cars to drive around the lobby and into the work bays. In addition, the structural design focuses on responding to flexibility and visibility, resulting in a state-of-the-art, hands-on learning environment reflected in the vast amount of exposed steel.

See how we brought the project to life.
