144 Laneda Building Structural Information

Structural Details

The primary structural system for the 144 Laneda building consists of 2” x  6” wood framing attached by anchor bolts and mechanical hold downs to a concrete stem wall that is connected to a concrete footing.  Floors on the first story of the building are 4” thick concrete slabs with steel mesh reinforcement added throughout the mix.  The slabs are connected to the stem walls with rebar. 

The floors on the second story are 11 7/8” wood joists over wood beams below.  Above these joists is a  ¾” wood sub floor, ¼” sound isolation board and 2 ¼” poured gypsum slab.

Exterior walls are sided in #1 Perfection cedar shingles imported from Vancouver, British Colombia installed with a 5” exposure.  Windows and exterior doors are a green anodized aluminum clad wood [fir] made by Loewen.  Interior walls consist of 1 to 2 layers of 5/8” sheetrock depending on the fire rating of the location.  The interior walls are a finished smooth, primed on the commercial level, primed and painted on the residential level.

Walls separating units from each other have ¼” of sound isolation board on each side under 5/8” of sheetrock.

All residential units have 2 exterior decks that are sealed with torched down modified bitumen with a floating Ipe walking surface that is not oiled.  The railings around these decks are made of cedar and are approximately 42” high.  The panels beneath the railings are solid #1 clear cedar finish planking visible to both sides. 


Residential Interior Finishes

All residential units have an engineered wood floor that is designed and warranted for installation over radiant, hydronic in floor heat.  These floors are installed as “floating” floors to minimize the possible effects of radiant heat and the changing weather conditions unique to the project’s coastal location.

The standard flooring for stairways, upper stair landing and bedrooms is commercial grade, short loop carpeting.

Ceilings are smooth finished sheetrock.

Cabinets are craftsman style natural birch with European style hardware.  Countertops are slab granite of at least 1” thickness with an undermount Kohler cast iron sink.

All interior doors are clear fir veneer single panel craftsman style with brushed nickel hardware.  All doors and solid clear vertical grain window trim and base molding are finished with a Danish furniture oil with a very low gloss.
