Structural Design for a 12-Unit Mixed Use New Development at Rebecca St., Pomona, CA

InnoDez provided structural design and engineering for a new 12-unit mixed-use development in Rebecca St., Pomona, CA.

We have completed 80% of the project and plans are under city plan check now.

This project was a 12-unit residential project with a garage serving those units at the ground floor, single unit area varied from 2700 sq.ft to 3150 sq.ft, total project area exceeded 20,000 SF (exactly 20,291 SF).

Project challenges were as follows:-

      • Structural system

Project’s structural system was timber framing over steel podium, with Reinforced concrete walls for the lateral system.

      • Weak soil capacity

With a bearing capacity 2000 psf and 4 stories building, it was challenging to figure out the best foundation system to support the building and avoid additional cost as well for this building. We used mixed system between Mat foundations and Slab on grades.

      • Roof 6’-0” overhangs from the roof parapet

With such requirement to work on a parapet with overhangs more than 6’-0”, and not to add additional cost to the building, it was challenging to use wood framing. But following client’s requirements, we succeeded to figure out the proper structural system to work with such requirement.

      • Project timeline

With multiple challenges and due to the market situation, we had to deliver the project ASAP. This time line was really challenging for the engineering team, however we finally succeeded to reach the client requirement and meet the time line by delivering the project in less than 60 days.
