40’ x 18’ x 15’ high booth for Visa photo ops. We redrew the entire structure in Sketchup. The engineer’s primary concern was the cantilevered front corner and its exposure to wind loads, so we used doubled up LVL beams supported by a Y shaped structural steel post concealed within the structure. We also provided LED flex lighting.
