Ithaca Sub-Residency

Foit-Albert Associates, as a subconsultant under a NYSDOT Term (RDSA) contract, was charged with designing a new esthetically pleasing sub-residency building as part of the Upstate Airport Economic Development and Revitalization at the Ithaca Airport.

The scope of our services centers on survey, architectural design, structural foundation, steel and wood frame design.

The proposed main headquarters was a prefab building that was modified with the incorporation of many additions. Structural Engineers designed and prepared plans for the foundation and supporting members to tie in the prefab building.

A structural challenge engineers encountered was that due to the design size, they had to tie one side to the other with heavy bars due to the size and load. Also, engineers were cognizant of the proximity of a sewer and need to make sure that the tie was designed around that sewer.

In addition, Structural Engineers designed the foundation, beams, posts and columns for a prefab cold storage pole barn.
