CIRI Headquarters

Schneider Structural Engineers provided structural design for CIRI’s eight-story, 114,000-square-foot corporate Fireweed Business Center. The structural systems for the building consist of a structural steel frame, buckling restrained brace frames (BRBF), and concrete mat foundations. Some of the key features of the building include a three-story open atrium, raking steel columns, cantilevered composite floor plates, and a 1,600-square-foot third-story balcony. Schneider worked with the design team to develop this BIM project using REVIT to coordinate the vastly complex array of structural, architectural, and M E and P systems. Schneider worked with the team’s GCCM to fast track the structural design and begin the steel procurement and detailing processes, cutting months off of the design and construction schedule.
