8th & Main
One of the many services CTA provided on the Eighth & Main project in Boise, ID, was structural engineering. After construction halted on a project at this site in 2002, a new developer stepped in to move the project forward. CTA partnered with Babcock Design Group to design an 18-story building on a partially installed foundation. The tower will feature several innovative structural features including a steel frame which incorporates castellated beams and allows for stronger floors and a wider span and a concrete core surrounding the stairs and elevators to serve as the lateral system to resist wind and handle seismic loads.
High Performance: Anticipated LEED Silver Certification once complete.
