  • Developed structural model for building
  • Designed & detailed foundations
  • Designed & detailed building steel framing system
  • Designed CMU wall
  • Developed buildup roof requirements and details
  • Developed cable tray supports & bus duct supports
  • Designed structural steel needed to support the HVAC unit
  • Developed AutoCAD model for pipe racks
  • Designed pipe racks, duct racks and cable trays on exterior of building
  • Prepared drawing details for FRP ductwork.
  • Designed additional structural steel supports and foundations for the absorber inlet and outlet ductwork.
  • Designed new steel platform and stairs for access to FRP duct access doors on the absorber inlet duct.
  • Designed new steel supports for absorber recirculation pipes, inline filters and access platform to in-line filters.
  • Analyzed ductwork corrosion allowance downstream of I.D. Fan.
  • Analyzed existing by-pass ductwork for boiler implosion forces.
