Washington Mutual Capital Plaza

This eleven story steel frame structure utilized the latest design concepts for seismic and wind resistance by using an eccentric braced frame system, one of the first applications in the Treasure Valley. The building is set in a tight corner lot, abutting the historic Egyptian Theater on one side and a five story parking structure on the other. A combination of drilled piers and large spread footings were provided due to the close proximity of these existing structures.
