16-20 Medford St – Somerville, MA

50-unit residential development over parking and retail space, with 72,000sf of framed floor/roof area, including a green roof and roof deck. Consists of 3-levels of Type VA wood construction over a 2-level Type 1A composite steel podium. The structure is supported by ground improvement elements consisting of rammed aggregate piers. The narrow shape of the site resulted in a lot of cantilevered conditions at the podium level, resulting in some characteristic steel framing conditions.

H+O Structural Engineering is the expert in structural design and optimization.  We help commercial real estate projects across the nation go smoothly and cost-effectively.

Do you know how much you could be saving on your building structure costs?

We help developers save an average of $800,000 in structure costs per project.

How is that possible? Structure costs are not something structural engineers typically measure, making it impossible for them – and you – to understand the cost implications of each design decision.

Seemingly insignificant design decisions greatly impact the bottom line.
