Join your SEAONC colleagues for the our April Monthly Meeting at a special location - SPUR Oakland.  Enjoy a hosted reception with appetizers, beer and wine from 5 - 5:45 PM followed by a 6 - 7 PM presentation on the Bass Biology Research Building Project at Stanford, currently under construction.  The project features a pair of 6-story steel structures with a bridge between, and a 63’ tall canopy with interesting tapered/sloping/pinned columns.

Lindsey Maclise and Dr. Ali Roufegarinejad of Forell/Elsesser Engineers will present on the Stanford Bass Biology Research Building in Palo Alto, CA that will occupy approximately 130,000 gross square feet located in the planned Biology Chemistry Quadrangle area.  The four-story structure, with basement, will house research spaces, support spaces, and a small vivarium, as well as other functions.  The building is divided into a north and a south structure which are seismically separated.  The two buildings are architecturally tied together by a large central canopy with tapered “V” columns.  The project is currently in the construction phase and will be completed later next summer.  The project utilized both a seismic moment frame system and a buckling restrained braced frames system.  For this presentation will include discussions on the various systems used, the non-linear time history analysis performed and the challenges presented in both design and construction.
