An Exposed and Expressive Signature Timber Structure
PROGRESS UPDATE: We are currently on site, so stay tuned for more updates.
StructureCraft helped Turner Construction and Perkins&Will win this design-build project. As Engineer of Record, we have worked through design phases, including Building Permit drawings. This is our second project in Washington D.C., following the Arena Stage project.
Our responsibilities include full engineering and construction for the superstructure, including the folded plate DLT (dowel-laminated timber) roof supported by Glulam / Steel substructure. As Engineer of Record, we were also responsible for the design of the concrete foundations.
