CIEMAS at Duke University (Pratt School of Engineering)
The four-building 322,000 sf CIEMAS was a major expansion for the Pratt School of Engineering at Duke University. Beginning in August of 2002, UFI completed a 32-week schedule on time by overcoming scheduling conflicts by working in multiple areas simultaneously.
The pan formed beam and joist project contained 18,000 cyd of concrete, 1,600 tons of rebar, and several large span PT beams over auditorium areas. Architectural CIP stairs, reveal segmented beams, and fluted columns within the 5 story auditorium create an impressive main entrance. CIEMAS was Duke University’s 1st LEEDS research building.
