The Apex on York project is a development of Educational Properties Group, providing student housing in the area of Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.  The project involves the construction of an eleven-story building with a total floor area of 300,200 square feet, providing 704 residential units.  The building is designed using manufactured modular units, to speed construction and improve economy of construction.  The building is constructed over parking at grade.  A structural steel platform with transfer beams is designed to support the modular structure above and transfer the loads to the foundation system.  Due to poor site soils, foundations are designed using augered piles.
Knudsen Engineering is responsible for the civil and structural engineering on this project.  Civil engineering included design of all site improvements and permitting.  Structural engineering included design of the modular structural system, structural steel platform and cast-in-place reinforced concrete building columns and foundations.
