Performed threshold inspection of the 59,000 square foot 5-story Hampton Inn on Jacksonville, Florida’s Southbank.  The building was constructed using load bearing masonry walls to resist the lateral hurricane forces and is supported on pre-stressed concrete piles and grade beams.. The first floor is a concrete slab-on-grade while the elevated floors and the roof are cast-in-place concrete flat slabs.  The inspection of this structure not only included the permanent structural framing but also included the temporary floor-to-floor shoring.

Performed threshold inspection of the 70,000 square foot 4-story Hampton Inn within the historic district of Fernandina Beach, Florida.  To support the building, the foundation system consisted of auger-cast concrete piles and concrete pile caps.  Directly above this system, the first floor consisted of a cast-in-place concrete slab with minimal mild reinforcing steel.  Above this level, the construction varied between the composite steel deck, steel beams, with steel columns on the 2nd floor and the composite steel deck with light-gage steel walls above the 2nd floor.  Each of these systems had light weight concrete supported by a steel deck as the floor system and each resisted the lateral hurricane wind forces by cross bracing and k-bracing.

Performed structural observations for the owner of the installed exterior sheathing during the construction of the hotel.  The owner was concerned with the structural integrity of the sheathing since there was a time lag of a few months between the installation of the sheathing and the application of the exterior siding.  The lag occurred during Jacksonville’s rainy season.
