Project summary

This project consisted of footing sizes varying from 24 inches wide x 1’6” deep to 10 inches wide x two feet deep with rebar ranging from #4 to #7 at 12 inches o.c.

Footings stepped one to three feet with multiple elevation changes and the walls had over 50 corners and several angles.

Complicating the structure were corbels along the tops of the wall to pick up the structural steel and several of the walls were battered 10 to 16 inches. Also, there were vast concrete columns to support the massive structural concrete deck.

Forming the walls and the structural deck used new HDO plywood to achieve a better finish and to decrease the chance for deflection. Concrete additives were used for walls and deck to increase flow-ability around the tight bar spacing (four inches in some spots) and to achieve a higher quality finish.

In order to accomplish the high level of detail, we used in house expertise to draw up wall profiles of every wall and column (60 total) with elevations, beam pockets, hardware, embeds, etc. The detailer also detailed all rebar for the structural deck and walls which ended up being over 500 pages of complex rebar details.
