MCE’s structural design was used for the Alhambra Training Facility. This facility includes a Fire Command 7 Bay Street-Scape Collapse Trainer, WRG Trench Rescue Trainer and a four-Story Class-A Structural Trainer.
MCE provided structural design and construction administration services for this four-level fire training facility, which consisted of a renovation and addition to the existing CMU building. Structural framing for the floor levels was in-filled between the perimeter CMU walls and consisted of structural steel columns and beams with composite concrete floor slabs.
MCE provided structural design services for four structures within the new training facility for Snohomish Fire & Rescue. All three structures were constructed using structural steel framing, with the largest building being five stories high. Typical gravity framing for the five-story tower consists of structural steel beams with a composite metal deck. The lateral system for the tower consists of special steel moment resisting frames designed to provide a large degree of ductility during a seismic event. The foundations for two of the structures were designed using a deep foundation system. The pilings are steel pin piles driven through the fill into the native soil below. Reinforced concrete pile caps and grade beams were designed to transfer loads to the supporting piling. The foundation system for the two smaller structures on the site consists of reinforced concrete mat foundations.
MCE provided structural engineering services including calculations, drawings, and construction services for a six-level, 7,200-square-foot steel-framed fire training facility for the Escondido Fire Department. The structural framing consists of structural steel beams and columns and utilized a composite concrete deck at all levels. The lateral system used for the building is Special Steel Moment Resisting Frames. Exterior walls were framed with light gauge steel girts and a metal panel siding.
MCE provided structural engineering services including calculations, drawings, and construction services for a five-level, 8,100-square-foot steel-framed structure used for fire training at the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training facility. The structural framing consists of structural steel beams and columns and utilized a composite concrete deck. The lateral system for the building was Special Steel Moment Resisting Frames. Exterior walls were framed with light-gauge steel girts and a metal panel siding.
