HBM’s role for this project included design of all structural elements, production of structural drawings and specifications, review of shop drawings, coordination and field visits during the construction process.

The structure is a one-story building with wood roof trusses supported on CMU bearing walls and steel columns. The total area of the building is 6,235 square feet.

A Finite Element Model was developed for the canopy using SAP 2000 to reflect the true geometry of the structure. SAP 2000 feature of steel design was used to design steel members as perAISC Steel Design Code. Beams and columns were checked for all possible combinations of shear, flexure and minor direction bending moments at six different stations. The P-M interaction values were displayed in design charts.
