O'Donnell & Naccarato provided structural engineering services for one 6-story and two 5-story residential buildings, as well as a 3-story community center and 3 flying connector bridges. General contractor, Dell Properties, Inc., selected O'Donnell & Naccarato after a number of buildings had been constructed to provide maximally efficient structural designs. The new residential buildings provide a total 640,000 SF, and are constructed of precast concrete plank on steel. The new 100,000 SF community center houses an 8,500 SF auditorium with a long-span roof. The elevated bridge/link structures utilize full-story steel trusses and span more than 125 ft with 35 ft cantilevers.
