Ingersoll Square Condominiums
Located at MLK Parkway and Ingersoll Avenue in the developing downtown Des Moines area, this building was to feature three floors of condominiums, underground parking, a pool, and other community areas.
The bulk of the building is conventional wood construction with wood trusses on wood bearing walls and wood shear walls for lateral load resistance. The wood construction transfers loads to a precast underground parking garage featuring hollowcore planks, prestressed concrete beams, precast concrete columns, and poured concrete foundation walls. Poor soil conditions were alleviated using a soils improvement method.
