Mixed use buildings present challenges in effectively stacking and transferring structural loads through occupancies with highly divergent architectural and functional requirements. Saiful Bouquet excels at thinking through these challenges with the design team and developing practical, cost effective solutions. Hotel rooms over retail, residential units over retail, amenity deck over hotel rooms over retail and conference rooms over parking? No problem – our extensive portfolio of mixed use projects has successfully solved such issues in many ways. Where mixed use projects involve large public assembly components, Saiful Bouquet prompts early discussions with building officials to establish the appropriate seismic risk category, and often works with the design team to shape the project in a way that minimizes the cost impacts.
