New York Building
A new 6-story industrial use building. Structural system consists of steel frame construction with state of the art buckling-restrained braced frames to resist lateral forces. Civil design features public street improvements along 3 frontages, public and private storm water facilities, and re-route of PGE transmission lines.
Structural steel was used for columns, lateral systems, floors, roof, and veneer support. Light Gauge steel was used for the curtain walls.
Building entry is a two-story, octagon-shaped rotunda. This Phase One structure is designed to support a future sky bridge to Building Two.
Open floor plan / flex space required a perimeter lateral system with interior collector elements. Extensive glazing and canopies required secondary structural steel support for veneers, including some overhead horizontal brick at rotunda window heads.
