Structural Description

Construction for the framed units in Building 2A, 2B, 3A and 3B is anticipated to consist of prefabricated wood roof and floor trusses supported on 2x bearing walls.  The upper residential levels will all be of Type 3A construction and will utilize 2-hour rated, non-combustible, exterior bearing walls.  There are a number of setbacks, and outdoor terraces within the wood framed portion of the buildings.  These areas will be required to meet the rating and combustibility requirements.  The midlevel garage slabs and the first floor slab will be conventionally reinforced concrete slabs. The second and third floor slabs will be post tensioned concrete slabs. The garage walls, columns, foundations, and slab on grade will also be created from conventionally reinforced concrete. Courtyard areas will be created from a slab fold in the elevated podium to drop the level of the podium below the level of the units.
