back to portfolio


This project consisted of new construction of a 4,500 square foot TD Ameritrade branch office building located in Alpharetta, GA across Old Milton Parkway from the main entrance of Avalon, one of the Atlanta area’s most vibrant premier mixed-use developments.

The building is type 5-B construction, business occupancy classification.  The primary structural framing system consists of reinforced concrete shallow foundations, a concrete slab on grade, wood framed exterior bearing walls, interior steel columns, and a wood truss roof.  The tower element at the main entry consists of structural steel framing.  The lateral force resisting system for the building consists of a combination of wood framed shear walls with structural wood shear panels, prefabricated steel shear panels, and structural steel moment frames at the steel framed entry tower.

Erudite Engineers served as the Structural Engineer of Record for the project, performing structural design from schematic design through production of construction drawings, and performing construction administration including site visits for construction observation.
