We provided the structural design for a new four-story, 200,000-square-foot office building. Included in the project was the renovation of an existing one-story, 50,000-square-foot retail building. An open lobby area with skylights connects the single-story portion of the building to the first floor of the four-story area. A curved exterior wall was designed along the front of both the four-story and one-story portions to give the separate portions a united appearance. An auditorium was constructed within the one-story portion of the building, which required removing of a few of the building columns and reframing a portion of the roof. There is an open four-story-high atrium space within the office building which includes a monumental stair with cantilevered framing.
