AECOM計劃的加州豐塔納交通治理中間可抗震7.5級地動

建成於2011年的加州豐塔納(Fontana)交通治理中間(IETMC)是由AECOM事件所計劃的,重要包容瞭兩個部分:加州運輸部和加州公路巡視隊。這座中間的重要職責是治理加州南部兩個縣的交通,它位於一個高度易震地域,四周有三條地動斷裂帶。
為瞭能讓這座修建在7.5級地動的情形下依舊能夠事情,AECOM事件所的工程組聯合高科技計劃瞭一座基座斷絕體系,可以或許讓修建程度挪動26英寸,而沒有會形成運營中止大概構造傷害。這一體系由31個自然橡膠制造的斷絕器與8個液體光滑器構成。這一裝配在加州大學聖地亞哥試驗室舉行瞭嚴厲測試。
作為第一座LEED金級認證的辦事舉措措施,IETMC勤儉瞭大批的能耗,橡膠斷絕器也為其可連續性加分,由於它是能夠快速收受接管的資本,占領全部資料本錢的5%。並且應用光能管道後,內部掌握室沒有須要電力照明變能點亮。隻要有大概,室內空間都邑應用間接的陽光照耀。
1萬平方英尺的數據中間由線纜支持,如許即使地動發生挪動,靈巧的管道接合和環形的線纜結構都可以或許讓修建體系接收地動波。

New traffic management center engineered to survive earthquakes and conserve resources.
A new Caltrans and Highway Patrol facility in Fontana, California, is being recognized for unprecedented sustainability in a high-demand building. The Inland Empire Transportation Management Center (IETMC) is the first essential services facility — a building type with high energy and performance demands — to achieve LEED Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Essential services facilities must remain operational during a natural disaster. In a region with three major fault lines, including the San Andreas, the IETMC posed a particular challenge. AECOM was tasked to create an environmentally sustainable building that can withstand a magnitude 7.5 earthquake without structural damage or interruption to sensitive telecommunications equipment.

On a normal day the IETMC will electronically monitor hundreds of miles of freeway, said Syed Raza, interim district director, California Department of Transportation. But in the event of a major disaster, this facility is designed to maintain continuous operations and serve as a CHP and Caltrans emergency operations center. We’re very proud to demonstrate that high technology and sustainability can coexist. It is also a great work environment for our employees.

The threefold puzzle of seismic safety, telecommunication reliability, and environmental sustainability was solved by high-performance buildings specialists at AECOM. (Learn more about the building’s design and engineering strategies.)

Minimizing the environmental footprint of a facility with hi-tech demands is a challenge, but an integrated approach allowed our team to optimize sustainable design strategies combined with robust, low-impact solutions, said Alastair MacGregor, leader of AECOM’s high-performance buildings group.

The building’s earthquake risk is minimized by a base-isolation system mounted between the foundation and structure that dissipates seismic energy. The base isolation system of natural rubber isolators and viscous fluid dampers allows the facility to move horizontally over two feet in any direction and return to its resting position, said Tom Grant, an associate vice president of building engineering for AECOM. The engineering challenge included accommodating this movement within the building’s architectural, electrical and plumbing systems.

The team’s sustainable design for IETMC reduces controllable energy use by 30 percent and potable water use by 50 percent over typical buildings of this kind. It retains 100 percent of storm water on site, eliminating any impact on surrounding areas during flash floods. Sensitive construction practices used 24 percent recycled materials and diverted over 75 percent of potential construction waste.

Project management of the facility’s design and construction was provided by the project management branch of the California Department of General Services Administration.
