Residential Building in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico

JCR Estructural designed this residential building located in the city of Los Mochis, in the state of Sinaloa, Mexico. The house is divided into two areas: the main area where the residential spaces are located, and an independent area in the garden, for recreational use.

The structure consists of one-way concrete slabs supported by reinforced concrete columns and beams. Certain very high beams also serve as architectural elements. Likewise, several structural steel columns have been arranged that are esthetically integrated with the exterior glass enclosures.

The largest beam has a span of 61.02 ft, supporting the slab of a terrace and generating in turn an open porch for access to the pool. This beam has a height of 61.02 inches and a width of 17.72 inches. The masonry is designed structurally, and the entire structure is founded on a nonlinear elastic support in the seismic zone. The model was designed with a dynamic analysis taking into account nonlinear behavior.

For the reinforced concrete design, RFEM in connection with the RF-CONCRETE add-on module was used. The design was carried out according to the American standard ACI. After the calculation, the CAD program Revit was used for further planning.

Location Los Mochis, Sinaloa
