Project
Description

Located in downtown Des Moines, this building was to feature four floors of condominiums/apartments and a series of 2-story live-work spaces at the main floor.

The bulk of the building is conventional wood construction with wood trusses on wood bearing walls and wood shear walls for lateral load resistance.  Some walls were masonry as well.  The wood and masonry construction transfers loads to continuous footings that bear on over-excavated and recompacted soil for adequate bearing pressure.
