Open Source City Center:


We are looking for someone with experience and access to SAP2000 to help designing/analyzing wood and steel structural systems for this structure:

You should have experience with wind loading analysis on low-rise residential/commercial buildings and designing the corresponding steel lateral force resistance system (LFRS). Your task with us will involve making assumptions in the analysis of the wind loading based on ASCE 7-10 and choosing a LFRS type that is both robust and economical for our structure.

* Experience with wood products (TJI, Glulam Beams) and AISC steel shape is helpful but not required.
* Access to or acknowledge of ASCE 7-10 minimum design loads for buildings is also a plus.
* Licensing in our state is not necessary, this is not for a final stamped review, that will come later and be done by someone else
