Almaden Terrace Condominiums

 

Almaden Terrace Condominiums

Biggs Cardosa performed the structural design for a 96-unit condominium project totaling 202,000 sf and consisting of four stories of wood-framed construction over two levels of concrete podium. Project challenges included design of two seismically separated superstructure wings, as well as various loading conditions at the post-tensioned concrete slabs including residential units, parking, multiple courtyards, and a green roof. Limited access to the courtyard at the rear of the building created fire access challenges which required large openings in the second floor podium. The openings were accommodated with no loss of parking on either of the two levels.
