Ben T Davis Beach Structure
Biller Reinhart Engineering Group, Inc. performed structural design services for the structural elements of new elevated building for concessions, lifeguard station and restrooms at the Beach Park. The construction of the new building is comprised of the following: 14-inch square pre-stressed concrete piles, elevated reinforced concrete slab with integral beams, reinforced concrete masonry unit walls on the elevated slab, pre-engineered non-corrosive (i.e., stainless steel) metal plate connected pressure-treated timber trusses and marine-grade plywood decking for roof framing, self supporting reinforced concrete ramp and stairs with guardrails and hand rails.

Biller Reinhart also provided technical assistance during the bid phase of the project and Construction Administration Services including correspondence for permit review and during construction, reviewed submittals and shop drawings regarding structural work, performed site visits to observe project construction and attended project related meetings.
