PROBLEM STATEMENT

Retrofit to support additional significant mechanical loads in an existing building corridor is expensive and time-consuming to design and install.

TIMELINE

ADVANTIC SCOPE

Advantic engineered the solution to meet project and code requirements, generated PE-stamped design documents and calculations, fabricated the structural system, and performed field installation support to a local trade already working at the job site.

TECHNICAL APPROACH

Advantic Engineers utilized fiber-reinforced polymer structural profiles to meet Code-prescribed strength and serviceability criteria including seismic loads, and eliminated foundations by employing the existing slab. Project Managers facilitated BIM coordination with the mechanical trades and value-engineered connection details for the supported equipment.

ECONOMICS

The fabricated cost was less than galvanized steel, and lead times were improved by 50-percent. Total installed cost was improved by more than 20-percent.
