Portfolio — Peace College Dormitory
Located in downtown Raleigh, NC, Peace College is a woman’s liberal arts college. This dormitory was designed to house approximately 65 upper class students at the school in “cottages” of five to eight students. Engineers at Fluhrer Reed drew upon their vast knowledge of multi-unit housing and suggested a construction system utilizing reinforced masonry bearing walls and columns along with steel bar joists. By using these construction materials, the building is well-equipped to withstand years of use with minimal wear and tear.
