Structural design for a 4,365 SF free standing restaurant located in Atlanta’s Hartsfield- Jackson International Airport. The restaurant is structurally independent with the exception of reinforcement of the floor structure to support the new super-structure. A unique combination of long spanning tube steel was used to simulate timber framing while concealing the lateral system moment frame within the walls. This project won the 2014 American Council of Engineering Consultants Georgia (GA/ACEC) Honor Award
This mixed-use development includes more than 63 acres and features an amphitheater, interactive water fountain, townhomes, retail, restaurants, office space, and city offices. The structural design includes some areas of structural steel framing and other areas where reinforced and post-tensioned concrete support three stories of wood framing.
Structural design of a two-story, 26,500 SF structural steel and tilt-up concrete office building. Site cast colored tilt-up concrete was determined to be more economical that architectural precast. This innovative use of tilt-up construction was recognized by the American Concrete Institute (ACI) with the First Place Award in 1999.

Built in 1926, Hurt Plaza is on the National Register of Historic Places. IEI performed survey and document research to create a composite structural drawing of first elevated building level for condition survey. Conducted condition survey of exterior basement walls and sidewalk support structure. Performed a cursory structural analysis of exterior wall and sidewalk structure for existing conditions and the Atlanta Streetcar. Prepared condition assessment report with recommendations for remedial work and engineered shoring of sidewalk and basement wall to support Atlanta Streetcar surcharge loading.
Performed a condition assessment of the 1117 Perimeter Center West parking sructure. The parking structure was constructed circa 1988 of cast-in-place concrete and has an overall footprint of approximately 120 feet by 540 feet. The parking structure has a capacity of approximately 708 vehicles and is 3 stories in height, with 2 elevated levels and a bottom level on grade. The objective of the assessment was to establish the existing condition of the parking structure and to develop repair and maintenance recommendations.
