Albano, Leonard D.
The purpose of this project is to recommend a structural design layout for a proposed mixed-use commercial building as part of the Gateway Park expansion. Using AISC, ACI, and MSBC provisions, two structural steel designs and two reinforced concrete designs were investigated with respect to the size of each bay. Typical concrete footing designs with reinforcing steel were also developed. In addition, floor layouts were established to meet functional requirements, and alternative cladding and green roofing systems were explored. The final design was chosen based on cost, space limitations, LEED specifications, and constructability criteria.
