Design of a Book Store R.C. Structure
The essential features of a multistory structure for a book store in the City of Santa Clara, California, as determined by Building drawings, are shown in Figures 1 to 5.
This term project consists of three phases:
A) Site Evaluation & Selection (Planning Report & Presentation).
B) Tasks to be Researched, Reviewed, and Presented.
C) Structural Design of the Building (Design Report & Presentation).
Phase A) Site Evaluation & Selection (Planning Report & Presentation)
As a 1.
Civil Engineer, you should first complete the following tasks prior to tasks “B” and “C”.
Identifyatleastthree(3)lotsinSantaClara,CAwheretheCityofSantaClarawouldallowfor construction of a structure with the above type of use. Identifylotsize,topographic,geologicalmap,trees,watermain,&sewerlines. Checkthisgivenbuildingprojectanditsdimensions(seefigures1to5)againstcityallowed setbacks, heights, & zoning for the final site chosen by the group. Becomefamiliarwithcityrequirementsregarding:Re-zoning,parkingneeds(including handicap, motorcycle, & bicycles), changing heights and/or other building dimensional limits, variances, Environmental Impact Report (E.I.R.), Negative Declaration (ND), and Traffic Impact Study. (T.I.S.) Prepare,asagroup,anoralpresentationwithvisualaidsusingMicrosoftPowerPoint software addressing the above findings. All students in each group shall equally participate in delivery of presentation. This will be the “Planning Presentation” Submit,asagroup,afinalwritten“PlanningReport.”Eachstudentneedstoindicatehis/her role in the Planning Report preparation process. This written report should include names and titles of all city staff that group member(s) met in regard to this project (& site selection). A copy of all related materials & filled relevant forms obtained from City should be included in the appendix of report.

Phase B) Tasks to be Researched, Reviewed, and Presented
All bold tasks are required for all groups; and must be described in the final reports, as well as the final presentation:
These tasks are: 1, 2,11,12, 13, 14, & 15
3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
13. 14. 15.
Assessment of teamwork which is listing contributions of each group member & her/his
percentage towards total group work (Planning & Design Reports).
Initial site development, planning, & layout of the building structure including floor area, parking, landscaping, etc. (Planning Report)
Coordination with client.
Impact of design and construction on the adjacent properties.
Geological study including balanced grading possibilities and seismic hazard consideration. Seismic hazard study.
Geotechnical study including soil boring plan and foundation type study.
Traffic and environmental constraints including air pollution impact statement for short (i.e., 6 months) and long term (i.e., 15 years) periods.
Municipal code requirements including storm and sanitary drains system design and a plan for disposal of hazardous waste, if any exist depending on the type of the structure assigned in this project.
Fire and serviceability criteria.
Layout of all that applies to your structure: interior walls, partitions, corridors, doors, windows, offices, waiting areas, restrooms, cafeteria, laboratories (Architecture).
Agency involvement: Any agency that must be contacted to obtain permits before starting construction; for example, Planning Department, Department of Public Works, Building Department; Fire Department, City Electric Utilities (PG&E &/or Silicon Valley Power), School Districts, County Health Department, Telephone/Cable Companies, Water Company, Sewer Company, Santa Clara/San Jose Water Pollution Control Plant (Planning Report).
Scheduling for required planning, design, & construction activities (Planning & Design Reports).
Cost estimation including but not limited to: land, engineering design, materials, labor, and other construction costs (Planning & Design Reports).
Perform all required engineering drawings. These include blue prints (Design Report).

Phase C) Structural Design of the Building (Design Report & Presentation)
C1) Building’s Structural and Architectural Design Constraints
After completing tasks in phases A & B, students will proceed to the structural design phase. You should be aware of and compliant with all architectural and structural constraints detailed below in your design:
Architectural constraints are:
Maximum floor overhang of 1’-0” is allowed.
rain load design.
II. Structural constraints are:
7. Allslabsshallbedesignedasone-wayslabs;Identifyareaswhereslabcannotbedesigned as a one-way slab piece; and, indicate in your design report how to mitigate non-one way slab areas in structural design of this building.
8. Coderequirementsmustbemetforstructuraldesignofthebuilding.(Thedesignmustbein compliance with following codes: ACI 318-14, 2015 IBC, ASCE 7-16, other local & city codes, and fire safety requirements.
C2) Project Design
Mindful of the city limitations and design constraints, each design team shall proceed with structural design and construction cost estimation of this project.
Once the design is complete, each group shall present their project (Design Presentation) & submit bound complete Set of Drawings & one Design Report.
An oral presentation with the submitted reports will be evaluated based on the attached evaluation guidelines. See pages 10, 11, 12, & 13 for further information.

Appendix A – Loading & Strength Data Considerations
Loading Data Note 1:
Consider additional minimum design loads as required by:
• Minimum Design Loads for Building & Other Structures (ASCE7)
• International Building Code (IBC)
• Applicable Mechanical, Fire, & Plumbing Code
2. Roofliveload 3. Rainload
1. Deadload(includeinterior movable partitions)
1. Storefront,mullions,&glass 2. Cast-in-placeconcrete
4. Architecturalpanels(facade) 5. Masonrywalls(ifused)
Students are not required to analyze nor design for lateral loading (Earthquake &/or Wind loading) on this building structure. Only ‘gravity’ (a.k.a. vertical) structural design is within the scope of this term project.
II. Strength Data
Concrete Strength (28 days), f'c = 5,000 psi Steel Yield Strength, Fy = 60,000 psi
- Use above values for:
1. Footings(Single/Isolated&Continuous) 2. SlabsonGrade(S.O.G.)&FloorSlabs 3. Girders&Beams
Assume allowable soil-bearing capacity of qa = 5,000 psf. (For Dead + Live Loads)
