Motels – Yorktown Inn
Multi-Level – Wood Framing
iGET is the Engineer of Record for the structural design of the multi-level motels. The Multi-story buildings have structural foundation on drilled bell piers and grade beam. Pre-engineered trusses were used for the roof. Extensive Value Engineering was performed to optimize this prototype design to create the most economical building for the square footage and site conditions.
The frame design was performed per AWA-NDS criteria, and Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic (SDPWS). Design involved optimal stud arrangement and spacing for supporting upper level walkways, the shear wall arrangements and diaphragms. The floor stiffness was optimized to minimize deflections.
iGET performed the structural design, prepared the construction drawings and followed through with permitting.
