back corner of reynolds office building housing virginia eye institute and dermatology associates of virginia

Reynolds Medical Office Building

This approximately 49,000 SF building housing the Virginia Eye Institute and Dermatology Associates of Virginia is part of the 90-acre Reynolds Crossing mixed-use complex. We were brought in to provide structural engineering services. We’re proud of our ability to be flexible during the design phase of any project. On this project, a late change in the orientation of the elevator shaft affected our initial design for lateral stability and in the need to move beams to reframe the area. Even with the requested change in the elevator orientation, we were able to meet the tight schedule and issue the drawings on time....

Collegiate School Academic Commons

[vc_row content_aligment="center"][vc_column][vc_column_text] The Collegiate Academic Commons was built to create a new hub for Upper School student life, including a café, a media center, classrooms, meeting rooms and more. This one-story, multi-use education building is approximately 27,00 SF. On this project, we created a Building Information Model (BIM) to complete the design work for this LEED Silver building.   The building is steel-framed, with tube-framed trusses, steel tube columns, beams and open web steel joists. It has an 8-sided tower element and sloped roof surfaces using over-framed light-gauge trusses. Walls feature steel stud wall framing with masonry veneer, and aluminum framed storefront assemblies.   Services: Surveying Structural Engineering [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

Smith's Landing

Smith’s Landing Development

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]A growing Blacksburg community needed additional housing and a hotel to accommodate residents, tourists, and Virginia Tech students. Our initial due diligence that included an environmental assessment and surveying facilitated the transformation of a highly-visible 13-acre site, which coincidentally housed an abandoned hotel, into Smith's Landing, a mixed-use development developed by and named for notable Virginia Tech alum, Bruce Smith. The development features an apartment complex, retail, and a Hilton Garden Inn.   Working alongside the project's architect-of-record, CMSS Architects (now Mason and Hanger), we led the development of the site plan from conceptual design to construction documents and provided construction phase services and inspections.   Services: Surveying Construction Materials Testing Utilities Engineering Environmental Services Site/Civil Engineering Structural Engineering[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...
