REI Co-op - Pinecrest
Pinecrest is a new 58-acre mixed-use district just outside of Cleveland, OH. The new development offers a blend of retail, restaurant, hotel, office and multifamily space. Providence provided structural design for the REI Co-op retail space.
The new REI retail building is a one-story structure with steel roof framing and a combination of masonry bearing and curtain walls founded on shallow spread footings. Hung brick veneer above the store-front facade is supported by structural steel beams/columns. Design for mechanical roof-top equipment, skylights, hung storage elements and facade glazing were also provided. Varying roof elevations and parapet heights for retail branding resulted in drifting snow design considerations.
