Status: In construction, designed at Arup
Project Description: Jason was the Project Manager and Structural Engineer of Record for the 17-storey, post-tensioned flat slab and concrete core-only structure. This 250 key hotel boasts thin 8 inch slabs throughout the typical floor plates with roof gardens at the podium and tower roof levels. The design takes advantage of a code exception to increase the permissible building height limit for core-only structures. In addition, the building is the first approved lateral system to utilize high strength 80ksi bar, improving constructability and saving 25% of the lateral system reinforcement. The piled foundation system bypasses the liquefiable soils of Mission Bay to deliver loads directly to bedrock 200 feet below.
