E.D. Pons and Associates provided the structural engineering services for a new elderly housing project using modular construction.Start A Project With Us
The building is a three-story structure constructed of wood modules.
The modules are designed to be constructed at the manufacturers facility and erected on-site. The shortened construction time provided by module construction results in reduced construction costs for the owner. The modules are supported by a conventional foundation system of continuous concrete wall footings. The floors are constructed of engineered lumber joists supported by wood bearing walls. Lateral stability for the modules is provided by wood shearwalls anchored to the foundation system. This project is in the construction documentation phase.
