Fire Station #11
Biller Reinhart Engineering Group, Inc. performed structural design services for the structural elements of a new fire station building. The new building is comprised of shallow spread concrete footings and concrete slab on structural fill, reinforced concrete masonry unit walls and concrete frame (beams and columns) and pre-engineered metal plated connected timber trusses and plywood decking for roof framing. The CMU walls along the east and west elevations of the building are retaining earth/structural fill and supporting sidewalks. A covered area housing a generator and other equipment is constructed at the southeast corner of the building.
Biller Reinhart performed calculations as required for the design of the fire station building and prepared construction documents (drawings and specifications) for the structural elements of the fire station building. Biller Reinhart provided technical assistance during the bid phase of the project and provided Construction Administration Services including correspondence for permit review and during construction, review of submittals and shop drawings regarding structural work, performed site visits to observe project construction and attended project related meetings.
