Summarize the project's program, features, and achievements: The development consists of approximately 71,000 sq. ft multi dock loading warehouse with 17,150 sq. ft second floor office space in the East Newton industrial area in Surrey, BC, Canada. The gravity system is provided by the tilt wall panels to the perimeter of the building with a combination of internal structural steel framing consisting of beams and columns supported off reinforced concrete foundations and internal tilt wall panels supported off strip and pad foundations providing support to the open web steel joists and metal roof decking. The ground floors consist of 7” thick slab on grade. Tilt wall panels to the exterior and interior of the buildings provide the lateral support system. The second-floor structure was constructed using open web steel joists and steel beams supporting the composite metal deck and concrete floor slabs. A combination of structural steel braces and the tilt wall panels provide the lateral support system to the second-floor level.
What obstacles were overcome related to the schedule, budget, program, specification, site, etc. on this project? The architectural design required for large overhead panels to be provided to the corner of the building at the office locations which provided challenges during the lifting & temporary bracing of the building.
