Abstract/Artist Statement

The Western Railway Museum is a non-profit railroad museum located in Solano County, CA that is operated by the Bay Area Electric Railroad Association. The original pole style barn that houses the majority of the operating equipment on site does not meet the current needs of the organization. The building is structurally inadequate and no longer able to protect the railroad equipment inside. The museum would like a new car barn to properly showcase the equipment in its historic context and to allow visitors to better appreciate the museum’s collection.

C.W. Engineering will be designing the new car barn and the surrounding site for the Western Railway Museum. Construction components of the exhibit hall consist of a site layout, the design of a structural steel framed building, a geotechnical analysis to design the foundation, and a water resources analysis to design a proper drainage system.

The site layout component consists of surveying the site and reconstructing the site to accommodate the new additions. Track layout, drainage layout, and overall site mapping will be considered and accounted for.

The water resources component involves the design of the sites drainage system and layout. Overall flows will be calculated in order to appropriately size culverts and channels.

The geotechnical component consists of the design of a concrete foundation. In order to design the foundation, a soils report will be analyzed so that a foundation and piles can be designed.

The structural component consists of the design of the steel frame and roof. In the design the loading of the building, both dead and live loads, beam design, column design, and connection design are being considered.
