Structural Engineering



Project Overview:

Providing structural design services for this new, four-story hotel included complete structural construction documents, bidding services, and associated construction administration services. Plans and details were developed for the reinforced concrete foundations, wood shear and bearing walls, structural steel columns and beams, and the structural loads appropriate for the roof system.

Since the building footprint was situated partially over an existing foundation, our team tailored the foundation design to accommodate these unique, site-specific requirements. During construction, we reviewed structural shop drawings, reviewed field test reports, and conducted several trips to the site to perform structural observations by the Engineer of Record as required by the NYS Building Code.

Project Fact:

NKB recommended and had performed geotechnical investigation for this project, to assure the appropriate structural system was being provided for the new Audi dealership.
