Structural Features

  • Because of the constraints of the site, there are extensive retaining walls, including MSE and soil nail walls.
  • Vibration studies were conducted during the analysis to ensure sensitive equipment functioned properly.
  • There is a large vault in the basement that houses a linear accelerator, which has walls up to 8 feet thick to block radiation.
  • Uzun + Case worked closely with the contractor to execute an aggressive construction schedule. To help speed construction, the 2-story pavilion at the front of the structure was constructed out of steel instead of concrete, as was the rest of the tower.
  • The parking deck is designed to be expandable both vertically and horizontally for the future addition of another building.
