Tech Report 1:
Tech report 1 examines the existing structural conditions of the Biobehavioral Health Building. Spot checks were done on several typical structural elements to see if they could carry the required loads. A brief analysis of wind and seismic loads were done to see how much lateral force the building would have to resist.

Tech Report 2:
Tech report 2 examines three different alternative and existing floor framing systems for the Biobehavioral Health Building. The three alternative systems were a precast hollow core plank on steel system, one-way concrete slab with beam system, and a two-way slab with drop panels system. A comparison was made between the existing composite beam and slab system and the three alternatives.

Tech Report 3:
Tech report 3 examines the lateral system of the BBH Building. The lateral system consists of moment frames and an eccentric braced frame. This system was modeled in ETABS to better understand how lateral loads are distributed between each frame. Spot checks were done on critical member to check for adequacy.
