University of Hawaii Nursing Building Renovation
BE Structural worked on the renovation of an existing four-story classroom and office building on the campus of the University of Hawaii. The existing structure is cast in place concrete with precast beams, cast in place slabs and columns. Due to the increase in floor loading in some areas the main girders needed to be strengthened to meet the current code requirements for shear strength. The project included the addition of a new mechanical building adjacent to house the new chillers and cooling towers for the air condition system.
