J. W. Cooper School — Shenandoah, Pennsylvania
The Cooper school is a 45,000 square feet structure built on a steel frame with walls made of brick and sandstone. The walls supply no support to the roof – the entire load is transferred to the steel skeleton into the foundation. Each room is individually fireproof; the East/West walls are 24″ thick and the North/South Walls are 30″ thick. The building footprint is 100′ x 150′ and has 600′ of sidewalk.
