The project will be a case study performed on Epoch Estate Wines Production Facility in Templeton California. The building is a cut and cover project which was designed to hug the existing oak trees on site. The building serves as a capstone to the Architectural Engineering curriculum because it seamlessly combines the four main structural building materials: steel, concrete, masonry and timber, while also including every lateral force resisting system into one succinct project. During the design of the project, meetings with the architecture of record and client representative occurred where discussion about design procedure and client’s needs took place. After these discussions, the calculation and drawing package were finalized and submitted to the architect and adviser. The packages were then returned to the student with proposed changes to the drawings and calculations in order to meet the needs of the architect of record and client. All changes were made and the project was re submitted to a standard of 75% Construction Documents phase.
