Lionakis is proud to announce that our structural team won a 2017 SEAOC Excellence in Engineering award for the Sutter Health 29th Street Bridge. The bridge provides access between the roof of an existing parking structure and the second floor of the new facility. Working with the idea of creating a bridge that would evoke memories of a treehouse, the resulting structural system takes two concentric braced frames in a chevron configuration, shifts the upper work-points off center and tilts the entire frame out-of-plane. When observed from typical viewing angles, the simple structural geometry is hidden behind the skewed angles. Congratulations to the entire team on all their hard work and creative designs that made this project great! Check out more details about our project here.
