Challenge
Providing a structural system compatible with research and teaching laboratory space and local construction practices.
Solution
Entuitive investigated structural systems in steel and concrete for various grid spacing options based on a multiple of a standard lab bench module. Appropriate vibration criteria were incorporated into typical bay studies. In addition, local contractors were consulted on preferred systems based on the project size and schedule, and a comparative costing of the systems considered was undertaken. A structural system was selected that best met the multiple criteria applicable to the project.
