Forest River, Inc.

Service:
  • Facility Design
Industry:
  • Industrial & Manufacturing

The project consisted of the installation of elevated work platforms and moveable mezzanines to be installed in an existing facility in a region of high seismicity on the US West Coast. The total project cost approximately $4.5 million and added approximately 35,000 sq. ft. of elevated workspace (10 – 15 ft high) in the facility. The total project time was approximately one year. The structure consisted of reinforced concrete footings, hot-rolled steel framing with bracing, open-web steel joists, and timber decking. Frost designed all of the aforementioned components, which were detailed for high-ductility performance requirements given the seismic design category D by adhering to the State Building Code, Municipal Code Requirements (which included external peer review of his calculations package) OSHA requirements, and applying the equations and methodologies of IBC, ASCE 7, ACI 318, and AISC 341 and 360, SJI, and AF&PA NDS.
