This office/warehouse facility consists of tilt-up concrete panels designed to accommodate future "knock-out" openings as well as additional interior mezzanine loadings. The roof structure consists of steel deck over a steel delta roof joists system.
This warehouse was a replacement for the existing that was destroyed by fire. Construction was able to begin a month after the fire due to a "fast-track" design process. Due to the warehouses extreme length and width, the structure is made up of extremely large glu-lam beams and steel columns. Lateral forces are resisted by a combination of plywood shear walls and tilt-up concrete panels.
This structure showcases the versatility and economy of a metal building while providing the durability of masonry walls. It incorporates an interior truck dock and high storage areas.
This project is a new 66,000 square foot manufacturing building with a 20,000 square foot two-story office structure. The main structural system is a pre-engineered steel building. AHJ provided the structural design for the foundation, slab on grade, masonry walls and stairs. The foundation system for the manufacturing building was designed to support heavy machinery as wells as several overhead bridge cranes with up to a 30 ton capacity. The office lobby stair structure is a circular, stainless steel design and required special design considerations
This office, manufacturing and storage facility was designed and constructed using a "fast track" construction process. The design development and construction phases of this project were ongoing simultaneously. The vertical and lateral load carrying system is pre-cast concrete panels that support open web steel joists and steel deck. Several panels had to be designed to carry loads from interior mezzanines while other panels (spandrels) had to be designed to span over long openings while supporting the roof structure concrete panels above.
