Our projects in "Structural Engineering" category

Marina Village at Daybreak

FOCUS provided structural engineering services for the townhomes in Marina Village, which feature one-, two-, and three-bedroom residences within walking distance of local stores, restaurants, and Daybreak’s SoDa Row shopping & entertainment area. Custom in style, the distinctive features of the residences include elevated nine-foot or vaulted ceilings and a rooftop deck that provides residents with beautiful views of Oquirrh Lake. FOCUS designed a lateral force resisting structural system to avoid a costly moment frame system. Careful attention was paid to South Jordan’s structural design requirements to ensure compliance.

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.

Lang Residence

The Lang residence consisted of a floor truss system, an open floor plan, and a 22-foot-high basketball court in the basement that required 20-foot foundation walls. The design of the home required creative structural engineering work and close coordination with the client, homeowner, and contractor.

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.

Draper Mill

Draper Mill is comprised of 31 townhome units built in a growing neighborhood and provides a transition and buffer between the residential neighborhood to the north and high traffic and commercial corridor of 12300 South.

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.

Holbrook Village

FOCUS structural engineers designed the buildings with wood framing and wood shear walls along with a combination of trusses and stick framing. Unique elevation types required modified trusses to achieve deck roof vaulting.

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.

Oquirrh Meadows Phase 5

Our CAD Services team drafted the complete home plan set for the entire subdivision of single-family homes, including floor plans, elevations, sections, framing plans, shear plans, and graded site plans.

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.
