CCMC – Three-Story Medical Office Buildings
The structural shell of this Medical Office Building included concrete tilt-up panels, and structural steel.
Precast concrete tilt-up panels served three purposes. First, the panels incorporated architectural reveals and served as a finished architectural wall. Second, it was the primary gravity supporting element for the floor and roof system at the exterior of the building. Third, the panels were used to provide full lateral resistance for wind and seismic loading.
Structural steel open webbed trusses were provided to support all roof loading, and steel wide flange members support the second floor composite concrete deck.
With the increasing size and demand on Clovis Community Medical Centers, Henderson Architectural Group designed a Medical Office Building that would be replicated 2 times.
As with many commercial properties, cost was at the forefront. With the layout of the structure, our recommendation was to use a precast concrete system. The floor and roof framing was divided into equal bays to further simplify the gravity framing of the structure.
Two of the four corners of the structure where left open for a wall of glass to add to the architecture. This required some creative structural detailing by Brooks Ransom so Henderson could achieve their outstanding architectural curb appeal.
