Our projects in "Commercial" category

Stewart Retail

Located on University Parkway in Orem, the new retail building will include five retail units. FOCUS provided structural design services for the retail addition. The center’s unique roof framing includes a tower with windows on all four sides and a large elevated arched roof section. The materials and treatments were designed to match nearby existing structures along this busy commercial corridor.

Ambulatory Surgical Center

Located in the Pleasant Valley Medical Plaza, this two-story 10,943 SF building will house a medical clinic and ambulatory surgical center. When constructed, the exterior elevations will include a mix of materials including glass, metal panels, masonry cladding and brick veneer.

Soleil Lofts

FOCUS provided civil engineering services for this project, which is located on a hillside in Herriman, UT. The biggest challenge on this site was the slope of the terrain. The project slopes approximately 70 feet across the site, so we had to work with the owner and architect to come up with some unique buildings that step down the site. The buildings enter on the first floor on the downhill side, and second floor on the uphill side.

Draper Smiles Office Building

FOCUS engineers worked closely with the architect and contractor to ensure all parties were on th same page with structural adjustments made to the building during construction.

River Heights Medical Offices

River Heights Medical building is a three story, 49,000 square foot medical office building intended for multiple tenants. FOCUS structural engineers avoided any expensive steel moment or brace frames by designing the entire building with wood shear walls. Accommodating both the large size of the building and the need for large, open, flexible spaces for future tenants required some teamwork and ingenuity to get the lateral force resisting system to safely and effectively function as all wood, and mostly confined to the exteriors of the building.

600 Lofts Apartments

Located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, 600 Lofts brings much-needed housing to a section of the city dominated by car dealerships, surface parking lots, and hotels. The six-story building consists of 274 units in studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations that sit above a two-level parking structure. The units are predominantly rented to individuals earning around 60 percent Area Median Income (AMI).

Hampton Inn

FOCUS provided full-service engineering for the hotel site including topographic survey, subdivision platting, civil engineering, and landscape architecture. Once design was approved, we provided construction staking for the contractor.

Ganesh Center

This two-story mixed-use building includes a restaurant, grocery store and office space. The 14,000 SF structure employs creative design elements to buffer higher intensity uses along Fort Union Boulevard from adjacent existing residential uses.

BMC Office Addition and Canopy

FOCUS did a thorough review of the current building code to ensure having a flexible floor with a rigid masonry wall system met all necessary requirements while also value engineering the structural design to meet the client’s budget.

Menlove Toyota

FOCUS provided full-service surveying and engineering of 11 phases of this project. The site is over 137+ acres and includes 700 lots on a very flat site.
