Featured Project: Basalite Tracy Plant Expansion

Basalite Tracy Plant Expansion

This heavy construction project involved supporting new machinery in an existing paver plant. The new machinery was massive and was installed by a specialized team from Japan. ASG had to coordinate new anchorages with existing foundation components to make sure that the aggressive construction schedule was not impacted. One piece of equipment required a fully grouted block wall enclosure and cast in place concrete deck structure just to contain the sound of the equipment under operation.

Structural Engineering for Telecom Projects

Structural Engineering for Telecom Projects

ASG has been directly involved in engineering telecommunications since 1996 when John Anderson began working for the Fibrebond Corporation. Since that time, John has been the Engineer of Record on hundreds of shelter projects throughout the United States. In 2010, ASG has also started working on site specific telecommunication projects including rooftop installations and pole/tower structure modifications.

ASG uses the TIA standard in conjunction with the latest analysis software to complete these designs efficiently. We specialize in basic on ground equipment installations as well as more complicated roof installs where strengthening of existing structural systems is oftentimes required.

October 1, 2012

Anderson Structural Group is proud to be the Structural Engineer on this award winning project. Working with Domus Development, Brown Construction, and two architects, the design-build teams were able to change the face of the Aklai Flats Neighborhood. The Project drastically improves the community; filling in a vacant lot with affordable housing, a community center and retail space adjacent to the light-rail line.

La Valentina Station, at 429 12th Street, is a mixed-use facility designed by David Baker and Partners Architects. Anderson Structural Group designed the cost-effective structure, composed of three-stories of wood framed (63 housing units) sitting atop a cast-in-place concrete podium. A curved steel screen around the exterior stair tower and clean exterior finishes give the building a modern look.

La Valentina North, at 331 12th street, adds affordable housing units at net zero energy. This time utilizing lower level Concrete Masonry Walls, wood framing and high-pitched roof trusses Anderson Structural Group was able to provide the craftsman style the architect, HYLA, desired to blend in with the neighborhood.
