Somerby at Sandy Springs

Somerby of Sandy Springs is located in the Perimeter area on the north side of Atlanta, Georgia. The complex consists of 128 Independent Living Units and 72 Assisted Living/Memory Care Units and 248,510 SF of total space, 40% of which consists of common areas.

The independent living building is a five-story structure that is type IIIA wood-framed construction on a conventional concrete slab on grade foundation. Post-tensioned concrete podium slab supports a portion of the wood framing, beneath which back-of-house spaces are located. Portions of the level 2 and 3 framing are composed of steel and engineered lumber, to provide clear space for common areas at below.

The assisted living/memory care building is a three-story structure that is type IIA construction, consisting of concrete slab on metal decking supported by cold-formed metal framing (CFMF) stud walls. Portions of the Level 2 framing included structural steel beams for transfer conditions created by open spaces at the ground level. The building is supported on a conventional concrete slab on grade foundation.

The common building is a steel-framed building utilizing composite slab on metal deck for the elevated floors and cold-formed metal framing (CFMF) roof trusses. The lateral system for this building was a combination of steel moment frames and steel braced frames.
