Our projects in "Structural Engineering" category

Pamela’s Place

Pamela’s Place is a multi-residential project designed to provide a safe and comfortable space for the disabled and previously homeless. It was built around the theme of community, bringing support to these two groups by incorporating welcoming and valuable communal spaces to promote social interaction. The five story, 100-unit building also features a medical clinic on the first floor.

Cooper Residence

This two-story, single-family residence is located on a large, sloped site near numerous canyons and trailheads. The 10,860 SF home features a walkout basement, indoor sports court, and rooftop patios. The homeowners enjoy large, mature trees and a creek that runs through the property.

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.

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.

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

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.
