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.

Costa Vida Midvale Restaurant

FOCUS worked with Terramerica, the original owner of the site, to develop this location. Because the site is relatively steep, grading and accessibility were specific challenges to our design. Our services included boundary and topographical survey, preliminary and final plats, site civil engineering, landscape and irrigation design, and SWPPP preparation.

SR-180 Turn Lanes American Fork

FOCUS worked closely with both UDOT and American Fork City to design a separate right turn lane and left turn lane into a major commercial development along 500 East (SR-180) in American Fork.

LHM_Lexus_Structural_Focus_Engineering_Utah

This custom showcase facility features an aluminum and glass exterior buttressed with limestone, natural wood paneling and polished stone tile floors. It was designed to meet the design elements of the Lexus brand with the spatial needs and functions of a working automotive dealership.

The Parc at Day Dairy

Through his earlier involvement with the project, Focus project manager Eric Winters was tasked with converting an existing site solution for a completely different type of construction. Focus worked through the grading design to provide changes to the parking lot, update sewer and storm drain systems, and provide ADA standards for accessible design to the new buildings. Existing utilities were redesigned for removal and reconstructed in new locations.
