FoundationThe foundation for our structure was primarily designed using the Bentley RamStructural System program. It consists of fourteen continuous foundation sections, eightof which face the north-south direction, while six face the east-west direction. The sizesof each foundation vary, however a width of 3 feet is universal for each one. The lengthsfor each foundation range from 233 feet to 60 feet, while the depth ranges from 5 feet to1.5 feet, with 1.5 feet being the most common in the areas where the foundations are inclose proximity to each other. Because of these sizes, a total of 15,667.5 cubic feet ofconcrete will be needed for the building stages. Base plates of 18x18 inches are usedfor each section that meets a column. Each column has a size of 12x12 with varyingthicknesses, so this base plate size will help prevent any puncture fractures fromoccurring. In order to have standard load combinations and design criteria, the ACI 318-08 and the IBC 2009 / ASCE 7-05 have been used for this process. All reinforcements,including top, bottom, and shear, have been designed in the aforementioned programas well, and are included in the design notes.
