The structural engineering for this 40,000sf new facility presents a long span challenge every engineer loves to solve. The column free 80’-0” span requested by the owner will allow the efficient use of space for the new vehicle maintenance shop and provide a large parking area above for vehicle storage. Using a combination of long span trusses and concrete KSI was able to achieve a cost effective solution to the long span building.

KSI was challenged to provide engineer service for the new service bay addition, new customer canopy, complete front façade renovation and the elimination of key existing bearing walls at the showroom area.

We worked closely with the architect and the contractor to address numerous filed conditions as they were uncovered and still meet the construction deadline.

Sea View JEEP Chrysler, The JEEP Store - Ocean Township, NJ

A popular Jersey Shore vehicle, JEEP’s planned renovation for an expanded showroom and service area required KSI to offer both gravity and lateral design engineering services.

Pine Belt Chevrolet - Eatontown, NJ

This project consisted of the demolition of the existing showroom and the reconstruction of a new showroom and renovation of the existing service area. The existing steel columns were utilized for support of the new roof along with new structural columns and footings. The large open showroom space was framed with clearspan trusses fabricated in two pieces and assembled in the field. The trusses spanned 70’-0’ with a 12’-0” cantilever overhang at each end to form the architectural façade. This building required tight coordination between the structural elements and the architectural façade as the two went hand in hand.
