Rattlesnake Hill is a planned continuing care retirement community in Sharon, MA featuring approximately 600 independent living apartments in six residential buildings. The complex also included a club house, visitor and sales center, underground utility plant, subterranean parking for 900 cars, ancillary buildings, and erected bridge connectors.

The project was not completed due to lack of support and approvals from the Town.

Scope | Solutions

As the structural engineer for the project, SGH's work included:

  • Structural system studies to maximize bay spacing, minimize structural system tonnage, and limit the requirement for load transfers between the steel building and cast-in-place concrete garage below
  • Collaboration between our regional Washington, DC and Boston, MA offices with the architect's offices in the same cities
  • Use of Revit Structure to prepare the structural design documents
  • Consultation on retaining wall and stepped foundations to accommodate the construction of the complex into the side of a hill
