E.D. Pons and Associates provided the structural engineering services for a new medical office building and pedestrian bridge.Start A Project With Us
The pedestrian bridge spans over a two lane road and parking lot to connect the new medical office building to the existing building. The pedestrian bridge is a steelframed structure supported on precast concrete piers. The bridge is designed as a free-standing structure to allow it to move independent of the two buildings. A vibration analysis was performed on the bridge to determine the sensitivity of the structure to walking vibrations. Vibration dampening bearing pads were used to limit vibration.
The office building is a three-story steel framed structure constructed on the side of a slope. The building is to be used for diagnostic medical testing. E.D. Pons and Associates designed the floors to support the specialized requirements of the diagnostic equipment.
