Biller Reinhart Engineering Group, Inc. performed a feasibility study to verify that the structure of the the Clearwater Marina Building’s second floor has the capacity to accommodate restaurant occupancy load per the current building code requirements and can support various equipment that will be used for the restaurant being proposed. The second floor is comprised of a concrete joist and beam system with a 2″ concrete floor slab supported by rectangular concrete columns. Biller Reinhart reviewed available drawings of the Clearwater Marina Building and any proposed plans of the new restaurant and equipment locations. Biller Reinhart conducted a visual survey to verify the accuracy of available record drawings and to assess the existing condition of discernable structural elements of the building. Biller Reinhart then performed structural calculations and non-destructive concrete testing to estimate the capacity of the second floor and provided an opinion regarding the ability of the second floor to accommodate the proposed new restaurant.
