- Championed the “Hambro” system as a cost-effective, fire-rated structural floor option
A 106,000-square-foot senior assisted and independent living facility, featuring a separate and secure wing for memory care. The three-story building includes 120 residential units with 108 assisted living beds and 36 memory care beds, a large dining area, private dining room, commercial kitchen, serving kitchen for memory care, and both commercial and residential laundry rooms on each floor. Resident amenities include a beauty salon, general store, billiard/game room, and media/theatre room.
In order to help meet the client’s budget, Sundt championed a cost effective, fire-rated structural floor system. The proprietary “Hambro” system provides a composite steel joist/concrete floor with a two-hour rating; not common for the area, the City of Davis was unsure about using this system. Sundt led the effort between the structural engineer and the City of Davis throughout the project. The system was successfully implemented as well as maintaining the client’s budget.
