Brentwood Fire Station Brentwood, NH

Overview

Summit Engineering was the structural engineer for Brentwood’s new 9-bay fire station as part of the design/build team of Ricci Construction. Included within the foundation of this 14,000-SF building is a nearly 30,000 gallon cistern. Roof framing was achieved by using 90-foot-long wood trusses. Summit Engineering also prepared the erection plan for the extremely long trusses. The plan called for construction of ganged trusses at the ground level. This allowed for the work crew to install roof sheathing and all the necessary bracing at a comfortable working elevation. Once braced and sheathed, the trusses were lifted in groups, allowing for limited time working at height for the construction crew.
