These trusses were designed as part of a two-story wood-framed addition to an existing ground -level masonry warehouse. Three of us in the office of Smith Engineering , Inc. worked on different portions of the design and CAD drawings. The trusses are intended to be a prominent visual element in the top floor office, cafeteria, and employee lounge areas.
Location: Oakland, CA, US
My Role: I evaluated wind and seismic loads and designed the trusses.
