Stiver Engineering was retained to provide structural design through a reinforced concrete foundation design for the hydrotest machine and the steel building that covers the machine in Houston, Texas. We designed the machine foundation as a pit to capture and provide water storage for the reuse of water during the testing procedure. The reinforced concrete pit is 47 feet by 12.5 feet by 13 feet deep.
Stiver Engineering provided construction consulting through a local precast manufacturer with a precast building design. The building, located in Houston, Texas, was designed to be delivered to the site as an assembled structure or as individual precast panels to be assembled onsite, and we designed lifting hooks for installing the panels and roof.
