SAUVIE ISLAND ACADEMY
Project Name: Sauvie Island Academy Addition
Project Manager: Logan Miller
Project Engineer: Logan Miller
Project Notes: This small detached addition to an existing private elementary school featured inverted pitched bottom chord roof trusses, and a few lengthy overhangs for the flat roof requiring a system of cantilevered engineered lumber members and connections designed for uplift on small backspans. A fairly high clerestory needed tall shear posts to transfer the amplified lateral loads in this high wind zone near the Columbia River with the standard force increases for schools.
Status: Completed 2018
