New Office Building and Parking Garage
IMEG provided structural engineering design services, and parking consultation, for the 185,000-sf, four-story steel frame corporate office building for MetLife, with plans for a future lateral office expansion. The project also features a 132,000-sf, three-level, 400-car precast concrete parking garage. The office building façade consists of architectural precast concrete panels on the lower floors with curtainwall on the upper floors. A glass-covered walkway joins the office building with the garage. Lateral loads are resisted by steel moment frames that eliminate the need for lateral bracing and provide flexibility for the building fit-out.
