prototype design

Generator House for Washington County, Timber, OR

This project was to design the vertical and lateral resisting elements for the proposed structure to house the generator for back-up power for the Washington County 911 Call Center. The generator house was built using Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) and designed to withstand heavy snow and wind loads. The generator house was designed to an immediate occupancy force level to ensure that it is functional after a catastrophe.
