Lexus Serramonte, Colma, CA
Construction of the pre-cast concrete parking structure and service center was completed in early 2009 but had sat dormant since then, pending final economic shake out in the auto industry. Using a design-build delivery platform, San Jose Construction worked closely with Hohbach-Lewin and Avanessian Associates to build this massive structure in less than nine months.
In order to minimize the number of interior columns, a pre-cast system consisting of double tees, planks, girders and columns (pre-cast concrete components supplied by Hanson Structural Precast) was employed for the gravity system. Besides the usual advantages of increased in-plant quality control and savings in construction time, this system allowed for spans of over 70 feet.
City Toyota, Daly City, CA
This new car dealership consists of a two story, 41,000 SF showroom with a four story, 168,000 square foot parking structure behind. Due to poor soils, both buildings’ foundations were constructed over ram aggregate piers that improved bearing pressures and alleviated settlement concerns. The site’s proximity to the San Andreas Fault (<0.5 km) lead to large anticipated ground motions and dynamic analyses were used to better represent the expected buildings' responses. The showroom is a steel/wood hybrid structure with steel moment frames and wood shear walls as the lateral system. The rear half of the building houses offices and a storage mezzanine for the facility's service department. The four story parking structure serves as a showroom, service facility, and storage building for the dealerships inventory. The building is framed with pre-stressed concrete gravity members and pre-cast, tilt up concrete shear walls serve as the lateral force resisting system. A cast-in-place concrete topping slab acts as the structural diaphragm, tying the various elements of the building together. The service department of the facility is located on the second story of the parking structure, which contains 48 service stalls. Three levels of parking above the service department hold the dealership's inventory. [hr]
