Edisto Electric Cooperative Barnwell Branch Office
For the new facility, our civil site team designed a multipurpose layout to accommodate its various intended uses. We designed a public parking area with electric vehicle parking stations, drive-through station for member bill-pay, storage yard for equipment, and fueling station for co-op vehicles. The facility was designed to access multiple SCDOT right-of-way points and our civil engineers made plans for controlled-access gates for restricted areas of the property.
Davis & Floyd’s structural engineering team designed the facility’s foundational elements. Design plans for the foundation of the facility included pre-engineered wood beams, concrete slab on grade, glulam heavy timber trusses, tongue and groove roof decking, and plate-connected wood roof truss design criteria. To protect the facility’s surrounding environment, our team designed containment structures for the co-op’s damaged and replacement transformers, preventing mineral oil leaks from mingling with the surrounding elements.
