The Anderson-Ball Classroom Building at San Jacinto College near Houston is one of the largest academic mass timber buildings in the U.S. and one of the first mass timber structures in the greater Houston area. The 122,000-square foot building, designed by Kirksey Architecture, houses three floors of educational space for engineering, mathematics, College Preparatory, and early high school learning students. It is constructed entirely of mass timber, except for a steel bracing used for lateral support. The wood, which is visible throughout the structure, is protected and beautified with a comprehensive three-coat system from Sansin (KP-12UVW, Precision Coat Glacier Gloss and Precision Coat Glacier Low Lustre). The architect selected Sansin for its vast experience and solid reputation with mass timber projects.
