Thornton Tomasetti is providing structural design services for new student housing at Humboldt State University. College Creek Apartments addresses the college’s housing shortage by providing 99 apartment-style units to accommodate 430 students.

The units are dispersed among four three-story complexes, each with covered walks and elevator/stair cores. Adjacent to the apartments is a 15,000-square-foot, two-story community center with an articulated clerestory. The community center building provides students with study rooms, a multi-purpose great hall, catering facilities, and food service options. Thornton Tomasetti is the structural engineer for the center as well as a nearby single-story restroom, maintenance and soccer building.

All of the buildings are of wood frame construction, with limited steel framing, and conventional slab-on-grade and shallow footings.
