Maserati of Louisville
- Architect: Castles Design Group
- Contractor: Kelley Construction
- Location: Louisville, KY
- Cost: $1.5 million
Maserati of Louisville will be a new, approximately 9,000 square foot dealership in Louisville, KY. The facility will be a structural steel frame system with a bar-joist roof. The walls will be predominately glass storefront with some CMU on the back of the building. Leonard Engineering provided all structural design and drafting for the project.
The shape of the building presented a design and detailing challenge, as many of the walls and column lines are oriented at different angles. The front of the building required the design of several steel moment frames to transfer lateral loads at the storefront areas. The large cantilever soffit along the front of the building was also a significant structural design challenge.
