cantilevered columns

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Is there any standard practice for the lateral support of drive thru's at
banks for wind or earthquake?  I am doing a new bank that is being slightly
copied from an existing.  The original engineer used moment connections on
the beam to column connections for lateral stability.  I am thinking of
using a cantilevered column with a spread footing to take the moment.  Is
there any pitfalls with this?  Any other ideas (bank is wood framed with
wood trusses for the most part, steel where needed.)
