Our team provided structural engineering services for this 470,000 SF community comprised of one, two and three-bedroom apartments and carriage homes. Ascent 430 also includes a clubhouse, maintenance building, garages and a resort-style pool facility. With 17 different building footprints across 25 buildings, the structures varied up to four stories in height and were constructed with wood-floor framing, pre-engineered wood roof trusses, and wood bearing/shearwalls. To accommodate site grading vs. finish floor differentials, concrete retaining walls were incorporated into the foundations as needed.
