Lord Fairfax CC Student Union

Lord Fairfax Community College Student Union, Middletown, VA

This 2 story, 32,000 square foot, student union building on the Middleton, Virginia, campus of Lord Fairfax Community College provides classroom, food service, bookstore and exercise spaces. A particular challenge structurally was the location of the exercise equipment and fitness classrooms as well as mechanical equipment on the second floor and the potential vibrations they can impart in the structure. The roof of this steel framed structure consists of metal roof deck on bar joists and the floors are composite slabs on steel beams.
