South Bay Program: Steel Mid-Rise Challenges and Innovations


    Steel Mid-rise:  It has replaced tilt-up as the new standard  for speculative development in Silicon Valley- what are the challenges with the building type, and is there room for innovation?  They're typically designed as office buildings, but how can they be adapted for other uses that tenants demand, including assembly and laboratory uses?


Speaker: Tom Parrish has been at DES Architects + Engineers for over 30 years designing projects throughout the Bay Area, and has led the Structural Engineering Group there since 2004. He will discuss his experience on several Silicon Valley projects, notably four major speculative office park developments in the Moffett Park area of Sunnyvale for the Jay Paul Company, as well as some of their major subsequent tenant improvements.  He will share some of the stories, challenges and lessons from these projects, and offer insight into how this building type has evolved and will continue to evolve in the future.
