Railroad Pass Travel Center

Risha Engineering engaged in this new single level, 8,150 square foot Railroad Pass Hotel & Casino Travel Center. It was designed using wood construction of pre-fabricated wood trusses for the roof framing, wood stud walls, and plywood shear walls as the lateral force resisting system. Foundations are conventional shallow continuous footings along with slab-on-grade for the pad. This warn shell and core design also allowed for mechanical equipment weight. We also provided the design for the trash enclosures and the lift station.

This project was designed using Life Safety Performance code standards.
