This project involved a commercial building that utilizes light wood frame construction instead of the typical steel and concrete construction type. Utilizing wood framing and trusses allowed the project to be constructed at a lower material cost but presented a design challenge to carry the lateral loads of the building through concentrated masonry shear walls. It required a lot of coordination with the architect and developer to have a relatively inexpensive structure that will still be structurally sound.
