intelligent structural solutions
San Francisco, California
For this project our engineers incorporated “fundex” piles into the foundation. This proprietary deep foundation system is especially beneficial for use where any building vibration is undesirable.
A major concern for this new construction was the effect the installation of the foundation system would have on adjacent historic buildings. We implemented a combination lateral force resisting system, placing moment frames one bay recessed from the building exterior, which preserved the architect’s desired aesthetic and reduced column quantities along the perimeter of the building. $6 million construction cost.
