Hi I got this question and the answer is transfer beams, can you explain what a transfer beam is? I thought it’s a heavy concrete beam. Also with parking lot and garage questions I think the idea is to use ibc to reference how many spots are needed, how do you go about parking lot and garage questions? I have the studio companion and it mentions parking lot structures, helix parking and split level.
The layout for a new 8-story concrete apartment building is planned with 20-foot by 20-foot structural bays. A parking garage with two-way traffic and 90-degree stalls will be located on the ground level and 1.5 subterranean levels.
What is needed at the parking garage to make the layout work for vehicle circulation?
