MARTOS is currently providing the structural engineering services for the construction of a new single-family residence totaling approximately 6,000 sf. The proposed design incorporates exposed concrete foundation walls up to the first-floor level, large glass walls, a partially above ground swimming pool, a double height space with glass wall, and multiple height roofs. Where possible, standard wood framing methods are being used opposed to heavier steel framing. The lateral stability for the structure will be provided with standard plywood sheathed shear walls. All foundations will be on spread footings.
