The Science and Design of Structural Engineering
BASE’s experience in podium style residential over parking construction was adapted for the unique requirements of this assisted living facility. The structure is configured over a basement to optimize parking and contains three upper all residential floors over an open ground floor with activity rooms, dining and administrative spaces.
Finding a cost-effective approach to framing a building with uses that vary from floor to floor is always difficult. BASE collaborated with the developer, architect and contractor to develop a wood-framed approach to the residential floors that decreased framing costs and increased the speed of construction.
