Assignment #3 – Project Part 1 – Location and Scope
Project Description – For your comprehensive project for the semester (worth 40% of your grade), you will develop a building/facility concept in which you will address the “hazard-resistant” design and construction considerations.  The project is introduced in Week Three: Instructor Video at 6:40.  Please refer to this video for more description.
The building/facility can be located anywhere that U.S. building code applies (we will use the IBC/IRC, and other additional, applicable code requirements you would like to explore) and must be subjected to at least 3 hazards – code-specified (e.g. wind, flood, seismic, rain, snow) or non-code-specified.  Likely any location will be subject to 3 hazards, so if you need some guidance about your location, please contact me.  There will be 3 assignments that guide you through your project.  This is the first assignment, and requires that you locate your building/facility, provide an overview of the scope, and look up code-specified hazard parameters.  If you have questions about the scope of the project, please post these to the Q&A Forum.
Project Part 1 – For your project building/facility, please answer all the questions below as completely as possible (if not applicable, please specify N/A).  You may use this word document as a template to provide your responses, or use another format if you wish.

What is the use of your building/facility?  Be as specific as possible
Where will your building be located?  Provide lat/long coordinates (should be able to find location based on this) and satellite/aerial image-based maps (as needed) to describe the project location.
What is the general configuration of your building/facility?  Square footage, number of stories, etc.
What are the primary building materials that will be used – structure, cladding (we will revisit dead loads later)?
What are the general design loads you need to consider based on quick review of building code?

o   Residential (2012 IRC) http://www.madcad.com.libezp.lib.lsu.edu/library/138093/369776/ – develop and complete a table similar to Table R301.2(1) Climatic and Geographic Design Criteria using the maps and data found in this section of the IRC.
o   Non-Residential (2012 IBC)

What is your Use and Occupancy Classification? What is your Risk Category? (http://www.madcad.com.libezp.lib.lsu.edu/library/IBC-12/, Chapter 3)
Review components of Chapter 16 (Structural Design) and provide numerical responses to describe code-required loads for:
live loads – based on use and occupancy of the building, what are the live loads?  Do they differ throughout the building or are they constant?
snow loads – look up the design ground snow load, pg
wind loads – look up the design wind speed for your Risk Category
rain loads – look up the 100-year, 1 hour rainfall
earthquake loads – look up the ground acceleration parameters (use USGS site from Week 2, Assignment #1)

What is your FEMA FIRM Flood Zone (msc.fema.gov)?  What is the significance of your flood zone (i.e. what does it mean)?
What is your Base Flood Elevation?
What is your Design Flood Elevation?
Provide the link to the State Hazard Mitigation Plan relevant to your project.  For Louisiana, it is http://www.getagameplan.org/mitigateplanupdate.htm.  Read/skim the risk assessment section (Louisiana-http://gohsep.la.gov/mitigation/2014SHMP/Section_2.pdf) and detail the most significant hazards that have the potential to impact your project.

To complete Assignment 3 – provide answers to all the questions above, either using this document as a template or in another template.  Save as a pdf (LASTNAME_A3.pdf) and upload to Moodle by Sunday of Week 3 at 11:55 pm.
