MP-Squared Structural Engineers provided the structural design services for Electronic Theatre Controls’ (ETC) newest expansion at their flagship facility in Middleton. Extraordinary in concept, this addition fulfilled the dreams of visionary leadership team at ETC. Modified shipping containers were stacked in unique layouts to serve as office and meeting areas. Exposed structural steel framing elements, oversized in some locations for visual effect, gave MP-Squared the ability to show off the structural system that we designed. To provide an area for the Research and Development division of ETC to fully test the capabilities of their systems, a portion of the roof system was designed to handle significant gravity and impact loading. Finally, lateral support was provided for a nearly 40-foot-tall curtain wall, which showcases the unique interior for all to see.
