Zurich Headquarters, Schaumburg, Illinois

This 735,000-square-foot new office building is formed of three primary "bars" that are offset and stacked. 

The top bar rises 11 stories and cantilevers toward downtown Chicago. For this top five-story bar, WSP USA, formerly Halvorson and Partners, has collaborated with the team to integrate full-height trusses to provide the 180-foot clear spans and 60-foot end cantilevers.

WSP USA worked closely with Goettsch and Clayco to integrate an optimal structural solution for these long-span and cantilever levels. Multi-story steel trusses on each face of the top 'bar' were organized to fit well within the architectural module, and steel layout and detailing were also vetted early for contractor input. The steel detailing and fabrication is proceeding in fast-track manner, as piles are being installed and the remainder of the final design details are being completed.
