AERZ civil structural consulting Inc. had prepared a construction inspection report for steel building near Okotoks, Alberta. The building is 70 feet long by 40 feet wide by 24 feet eave height.
Also we prepared drawings for the mezzanine in the building after checking the as built conditions and checking the current mezzanine structure design is safe and satisfy the Alberta building code structurally, CSA steel design standards CSA-S16, concrete design standards CSA-A23.3, Engineering design in wood standard CSA-O86 and Canadian foundation manual. There were design changes that were not incorporated in the old design drawings.
There was a need to study and check the interaction between the mezzanine and the steel building that was laterally supporting the mezzanine. Therefore a STAAD PRO model was prepared for this previous reason.
