Demolition to Construction

The existing 19,771-square-foot site was occupied by three single-story warehouses which were demolished to make way for the new construction. Based on our geotechnical investigation and analysis, the foundation system best suited for the existing site conditions was a spread footing foundation system. Sections of the foundation wall incorporate retaining wall design as well as spaces for the support of excavation design. The building construction is concrete block and hollow core plank. All non-load-bearing partition construction is designed to be cold formed metal framing.

Bold Design Elements

A key feature of the building is the glass tower that spans the height of the building. A concrete canopy supported by a 16” diameter steel column makes a bold entrance statement.
