Stahly Engineering was the structural engineer of record for this EHPS elementary school. The main structure was comprised of wood framing with steel and reinforced concrete elements incorporated into the design. Stahly performed lateral analysis and design, as well as steel framing and foundation design.
A frost protected monolithic foundation was utilized in the design to eliminate excess concrete in the foundation and reduce overall excavation and foundation costs for the owner. The structural design team coordinated extensively with the architect and other engineering consultants throughout the design process. Typically, the design for this extensive of a project will take up to a year. However, the Stahly team completed the plans in 5 months. The team also spear-headed a design that allowed the mechanical engineer to have much larger areas to work with within the building.
