CORA Services Building

Keast & Hood provided structural engineering services for design of a new, three-story office headquarters for the non-profit organization.

CORA Services is a community-based youth services provider sponsored by the Sisters of the Good Shepherd. Its headquarters is a 46,000-sf steel-framed building with exposed steel in the lobby and adjoining stair tower. The lobby features a large clerestory and acoustic metal deck to reduce sound reverberation. Built partially into a sloping site, the facility is accessible from grade at both the first and second floor levels. The design provides a user-friendly safe haven for children and teens in crisis.
