WBCM provided civil and structural engineering services for the eight-story addition to PHFA’s eight-story headquarters, which WBCM helped design 15 years earlier. The addition was designed to meet Passive House standards and obtain LEED Platinum certification. The design involved significant challenge of separating the steel frame and foundations from thermal load transfer. WBCM solved the problem by using high-density thermal isolators under the baseplates.
