Red Oak Park

Red Oak Park

Services: Structural analysis and design, construction document preparation, field observations, and construction administration services
Architect: Coburn Development
Completed: Under construction
Structural Systems: Engineered wood-truss roofs, with panelized double 2x4 exterior bearing wall systems.  Foundations are thickened edge monolithic reinforced concrete slabs on drilled piers.  Lateral resisting systems include conventional ply-sheathed shear walls and stand-alone shear braces anchored to foundation elements.

Description: This affordable housing community is a product of a collaboration between Coburn Development and Boulder Housing partners who are creating 59 single family, duplex and triplex units within the confines of a city block previously occupied by a mobile home park.  The design and construction techniques emphasized green building and energy efficiency.  Solar PV arrays cover nearly every south-facing roof on the site.  Particular structural challenges were related to the tall, skinny shape of some of single-family units with short lengths of remaining exterior wall panels on the front and rear of the buildings, necessitating the shear braces and heavy-duty anchorage to the concrete foundations.  Expansive soils, along with a relatively flat site,  lead to the shallow thickened edge slab on pier foundation system used on every residential building.
