PEI has completed 20+ new buildings and 50+ renovations of existing spaces for Planet Fitness. New spaces are typically about 30,000 square feet in two stories. Construction is typically steel framed with CFS stud walls or load bearing masonry with steel roof and floor. Tall parapets with cantilevered cornices and the curved signage face create signature accents.
PEI worked on several buildings at this site including restaurants and retail spaces.
This 18-acre mixed-use project on the Ohio River is nestled between the Great American Ball Park and Paul Brown Stadium. The final project will include nearly three million square feet of residential units, street-level retail, restaurants, offices, and hotel rooms. PEI partnered with another local engineering firm on the structural work for Phase 1A of this signature project. Phase 1A, shown in a beige color in the partial map at the right, opened in 2011 and includes 300 luxury apartments, 80,000 square feet of in-line retail and restaurants, and over 3,300 parking spaces (primarily underground). PEI provided construction documents for the retail construction at the southwest corner of Lot 26 and construction observation for the elevated cast-in-place concrete construction at Lot 26 and Lot 16.
New 27,500 square foot two story building. The complex roof layout for this project required the use of wood laminated timber trusses at the main aisle ways, curved steel channels at the entry elements, and typical steel joist and beam framing elsewhere. To meet the client’s need to store parts and motorcycles on the second floor, composite steel beams and slabs where used with the remaining second floor area framed with bar joist and beam construction for economy. Lateral stability for the building was obtained by use of masonry shear walls and steel rigid frames which had wood applied to create a timber frame look.
New 24,050 square foot single story building. Site conditions required that the floor slab at the rear face of the building be six feet above grade. This was accomplished with reinforced masonry retaining walls eight feet in height. The roof framing for this project is steel joists and girders. Lateral stability for the building was obtained by use of masonry shear walls in one direction and with rigid frames in the other.
New 24,050 square foot single story building with an attached 4,950 square foot retail space. The roof framing for this project is steel joists and girders. Lateral stability for the building was obtained by use of masonry shear walls in one direction and with rigid frames in the other. The concrete masonry block walls cantilever above the roof up to ten feet in some areas to create the building parapets.
New 57,400 square foot single story building. The roof framing for this project is steel joists and girders. To provide as much window area as possible, the roof framing is detailed with rigid connections to the columns to create frame action thus allowing the elimination of shear walls and X-bracing.
