Ala Moana Shopping Center

Ala Moana Shopping Center expansion was designed to add approximately 50 new tenant spaces above an existing below-grade parking structure. Previous code revisions mandated a seismic upgrade to handle the additional load mass prior to renovation. Steel was chosen for the support system and Stearns was approached to provide design assistance, value-engineering expertise, and material selection for the seismic upgrade of the operating Ala Moana Mall facility. Providing the appropriate structural steel system brought the project to completion on time and within budget.

Brewery Blocks

Brewery Block One, in the historic district of Portland, Oregon, carries a 100-year old concrete façade, within which Stearns erected the steel frame.

Inside the high-end grocery retail section, SmartBeams were painted and left exposed for their aesthetic appeal.

The 250-pound live-loads and 50-foot spans on the upper telco floors were an extremely cost effective use of SmartBeam framing.

Lake View Village

An upscale 84,000 sq.ft., mixed-use plaza with fine retail and dining establishments on the ground level and offices on the upper floors. The project consists of five separate structures surrounding a 4-story parking garage.

Stearns provided design assistance, structural steel systems selection, fabrication and erection drawings, and accelerated the steel construction schedule. A unique design feature is the use of cantilevered steel and concrete floor systems at the perimeter to resist uplift of the wood-framed over-build for this European influenced architecture.

New Seasons

A state-of-the-art, 18,000 sq.ft. steel-framed retail store includes 37-stalls of roof-top parking framed with SmartBeams and wide-flange beams and 50 bike spaces around the building perimeter. This challenging project required maximizing retail space and parking on a tight site for this popular local boutique grocer.  Two dramatic stair towers anchor the development, providing activated corners that will glow at night. Ramp access is provided on one side street, while receiving is on the next side street, with curb-side loading. Suspended metal canopies provide enclosure for pedestrians and shoppers.

Stearns was brought on board to provide design assistance and structural steel system selection, architectural features for the stair towers and canopies, fabrication and erection drawings, and to manage the fast-track steel construction schedule, bringing this project to successful completion on time and within budget.

Royal Hawaiian

Stearns assisted with the steel design of the much anticipated Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center renovation project. A once outdated center dominated by heavy concrete has turned into an upscale lifestyle center bathed in light and featuring locally inspired design elements. The center's pedestrian traffic now flows outdoors and more intimately connects with palm trees and tiki torches. Several lanai decks feature vistas of the surrounding area. The use of extended beams and trellises provide a natural filter to the bright Hawaiian sun.

Stearns design assistance and system recommendations allowed them to procure materials prior to design completion. The renovation was constructed in phases to minimize tenant closure. The goal was to revitalize the mall and create an architectural theme expressive of the Hawaiian culture to visiting tourists. The Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center is a major attraction in the city of Honolulu offering over 110 shops and restaurants and is one of Hawaii’s largest shopping malls.

Whole Foods

This 62,200 sq.ft. shell for Whole Foods, located near Bridgeport Village Shopping Center, received the Top Project award by DJC Magazine.
