TGRWA provided the structural design, working drawings and construction phase services for the 100,000 square foot, 3-story structural steel framed office building located in Effingham, Illinois. The building includes a walk-out basement, green roof spaces and an occupied roof terrace. Special considerations were given to the column layout to create as much column free areas in the workspace areas to allow the space to adapt to the Owner’s changing needs. The building structure includes slab-on-metal deck supported by steel framing on conventional spread footings. The building’s lateral system includes steel braced frames and reinforced concrete shear walls.
