Millbrook School Girls Dormitory

Project Details

The Girls Dormitory is intended to provide a greater amount of suitable housing on campus.  The building houses single and double rooms for 44 students and five faculty/staff apartments.

The 25,000 square foot building is framed primarily with engineered wood; wood I-joists floor systems with Gypcrete overlay to reduce sound transmission between floors. Prefabricated wood roof trusses make up the roof framing system.  Using a creative layout of ganged trusses and ladder infill framing, a center access corridor and seven-foot square alcoves off the corridors were created in the attic space to locate and service mechanical equipment.
