Hyundai Dealership

Santa Fe, NM

Structural design for the Hyundai Dealership consisted of the addition of a service canopy and the restructuring of the existing building’s lateral force resisting system for increased lateral loads from the extensive remodel. The service canopy utilized a steel beam and column moment frame to support a wood truss-framed roof system. In addition, our office provided design for new signage, including a 12 foot x 12 foot corner-mounted building sign.

The Nissan Dealership underwent extensive remodel and additions. The project included the structural design for the addition of a new service canopy, customer service wing, carwash, restructuring of the existing store front, and the extension of the second floor parts storage. Numerous building materials were used in the design, including CMU, engineered lumber, structural steel, and steel bar joists. Our office also designed support for new openings that were cut into the existing structure’s CMU.

The new 30,000 square foot, two-story building was constructed with the use of a combination of pre-manufactured metal building systems, cold formed steel (light gauge) and structural steel framing. Geotechnical investigation determined that the existing building site required extensive over excavation prior to the construction of the building. As an alternative, LTSE provided a BRAB type foundation type to reduce the potential for future settlement. Design for the foundation system was completed using a finite element analysis and model based on subgrade modulus, allowable soil bearing pressure, center and edge lift values. The foundation design proved challenging, in this case, due to high point load conditions from the metal building columns, vehicle lift and pit locations in the service area, and slab depressions for second story lifts and stair.

Philmont Scout Ranch Tooth of Time Trading Post, Snack Bar, & The Nick Pisor Memorial Plaza

Cimarron, NM

The project included the installation of a new snack bar building, exterior entertainment and dining plaza, and an extensive renovation and addition to the existing historical Tooth of Time Trading Post. The new snack bar building roof framing utilized timber wood trusses with steel plates at the truss joints. The timber trusses were designed to free-span the entire building width to avoid the use of interior load bearing walls or columns. In addition, the top chord of the trusses cantilevered beyond the exterior wall to create a large overhang to keep snow build up away from the building for the high snow loads in this area. The plaza was created with the use of varying height concrete retaining walls. Design was modified during construction to preserve existing trees.
