Napa Hall is the 34,000-SF home of California State University, Sacramento’s College of Continuing Education. The facility features eight classrooms, three hands-on computer labs and five conference rooms, as well as offices and work areas for administrative, conference and programming staff.
Miyamoto International’s structural engineering priority was the building’s performance during an earthquake. The lateral force resisting system consists of special concentric braced frames. With its design and advanced engineering, the firm captured the University’s goal of utilizing the building, not only as a home for programs and staff, but also as a visual and tangible symbol of the connection between the CSUS campus and the greater Sacramento community.
