Technical Assignment 1

This report takes a look at existing conditions and existing structural
systems. The gravity and lateral loads for the Production Building
were calculated and spot checks performed for select members.

Technical Assignment 2

This report compares four different gravity systems, weights the advantages of each and decides which are viable options for the Production Building. Please click on the link to the left or the thumbnail also to the left for a full PDF of Technical Assignment 2.

Technical Assignment 3

This report examines the lateral system currently existing in the
Production Building. Computer modeling software ETABS was used
to analyze the exsiting structure for wind and earthquake loads. Spot
checks were performed for the lateral system to verify the computer
calculations. Please click the link to the left or the tumbnail to the right
for a full PDF of Technical Assignment 3.
