Le Centre Chretien de Formation des Fille (Girls' Christian School)
The 3,250 s.f. Administration and 4,400 s.f. Classroom buildings are both two stories
and have wood framed roofs supported on site built trusses. This roof is directly over a concrete slab to reduce heat gain
through the roof. The walls are constructed from a site cast masonry blocks and capped with concrete tie beams which are poured
monolithically with the floor.
s.f. Chapel building is constructed from concrete beams and columns (moment frames). This is infilled with steel
channel roof joists. The exterior walls are site cast masonry units. This building is attached to a 2000 s.f. Kitchen building
and a three story, 8400 s.f. Dormitory building framed with concrete shear walls, floor slabs and wood framed roofs over
concrete slabs for ventilation.
GSC was the
structural engineer of the team that was put together to design this center for Girls in Korhogo. The entire package
was donated to World Venture, a mission organization with more than 500 missionaries in more than 60 countries.
