Phoenix, AZ

Polly Rosenbaum Archives Building

Southwest Operation

This 2-story concrete library and archive building was built by Ceco Concrete Construction, a nationwide design-assist structural concrete formwork and frame contractor. Ceco employed a mild-reinforced flat plate with drops structural system, increasing rigidity for heavier loads while maintaining flexibility. Ceco successfully overcame the challenges of working with high floor-to-floor heights and a roof with a 4-way pitch.
