** PRIOR FIRM EXPERIENCE
As Project Engineer, Robert Randall worked on the structural engineering design for the new library expansion project to the existing law library on the UCLA campus in Los Angeles, California. The project consisted of renovating portions of the existing library and adding on a structurally independent, 130,00 square foot, five-story expansion building.
The expansion building structure is constructed of elevated concrete and elevated steel floor framing construction. Concrete, concrete masonry and reinforced brick shear walls where utilized for lateral bracing with the red brick used to mimic the ionic campus architecture. Unique structural enhancements were made to the existing structure for support of heavier imposed, new floor loading and re-supporting areas that were carved out to make allowance for the expansion as well as transition from the old to the new structures. Steel framing was used to support the monument tower that expresses beautiful wood mill work.
