THE GOAL

The goal of this project was to provide structural engineering for a LEED Green project with a very stringent budget and very specific architectural features including Structurally Insulated Panels (SIP\'s) in heavy snow, wind and seismic country.

THE RESULT

Working with SIP\'s in Tahoe can be very challenging. One can not simply use the manufactures charts, because their charts do not meet our snow load requirements. We therefore worked with the manufacture and testing agencies to determine the properties and specific variables to calculate the actual capacity of the SIP in each configuration for the project.
