Currently, we have a completed Revit Building design
We are now starting the next phase of our construction project and we are now looking for a detailed structural design and load analysis for our building.
The building is a 3 story office building (approx= 50,000 sf)
We are planning to use load bearing Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Panels for exterior load bearing loads. In addition, the 2nd, 3rd story floor, and roof will be made from ACC floor panels.
However, given the limitations of the span distance of the ACC floor panels the project will require a steel grid that will tie into the ACC exterior wall panels. Given the load bearing capacity of the exterior ACC panels there shouldn't be a need for a steel column perimeter.
For the interior space, the floors and roof will be supported by a steel column/ girder / beam system, thereby avoiding the need for interior load bearing walls.
All structural details must comply with the USA AAC building requirements along with the 2009 IBC manual. Both resources are included in the project files.
Given the complexity and details of the project, please review all of the specifications of the AAC panels before considering bidding on project.
All work must be completed in Revit and all drafts of the project must be saved on our network server. We will have multiple upwork contractors working on the project so all work must be shared.
The structural design and load analysis should be Revit 2016/2017
The plan must include:
1. Detailed concrete slab, foundation, column supports, along with detailed rebar configurations
2. Steel grid for columns, girders, supporting beams for the floors and roof
3. The exterior walls, floor, roof will be made out of autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) panels [ note; there are BIM objects available on line]
3a. note: the AAC panels are loadbearing walls and the steel grid needs to be integrated into the exterior walls
3b. the AAC floor panels will be connected with a concrete bound seams that are tied into the steel grid via shear stud anchors.
3c. The AAC floor panels are integrated in the AAC exterior load-bearing walls through a concrete bound seam and a concrete rim that extends around the complete exterior. All of the concrete bound seams and rim are tied together with rebar.
3d. All structural designs must comply with the 2009 IBC manual and the current USA AAC Panel code manual (references included)
