Structure Evaluation Engineers, Inc. (SEE)  was retained to provide structural design services for an eight-story residential building with fifty units. The first three floors were deigned as parking floors and the top five floors housed the residential units.

The complex was located near the river in the flood zone. Therefore, a deep foundation system was designed that allowed water movement under the building. The building framing consisted of reinforced concrete floors and columns with masonry exterior walls.

SEE prepared foundation plan, floor plans, roof framing, sections, details, and reviewed final drawings.
