IMEG provides structural design for Survey Monkey’s new rooftop ‘backyard’

Nishkian Menninger now IMEG provided structural design for Survey Monkey’s new rooftop terrace at the firm’s headquarters in San Mateo, CA. 

The 7,500-square-foot terrace provides amenities for meetings, breaks, fitness, lunch, and happy hours. The space features a series of raised planters and large pots for additional plants and trees to simulate a residential “backyard” – which replaced the original goal of a large rooftop garden after structural analysis showed the 200,000-sf building could not support the required soil volume. 

The biophilic-designed outdoor space is the final component of the company’s LEED Gold certified headquarters building, for which IMEG served as engineer of record.
