Café Street Design

AEON Mall – Café Street
Project Location: Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Client: Advance Construction (Cambodia) Co., Ltd.

AE was hired to perform the structural design and construction drawings for four café structures. Though these buildings were new, single-story concrete structures, their design had to be coordinated with the existing sub-grade utilities supplying the mall.

In addition to the new café structures, AE also was commissioned to design the steel frame and concrete foundations to support 14 different open structures supporting solar panels and glass canopies. Many were stand-alone structures, while several had to be supported off of the café structures.

AE’s scope of work included full structural analysis, design calculations, construction drawings and details, as well as routine coordination meetings and site observations. AE participated in extensive coordination and design iterations on this constantly evolving project. AE worked diligently with the contractor, architect, and manufacturers in order to meet the project’s tight deadline.

Project Duration: October 2013 to May 2014
