Case Study: Operation Finally Home

PROJECT NAME: Operation Finally Home

LOCATION: League City, Texas

COMPLETION DATE: November 2013

OWNER: PFC Christopher Sullivan

BUILDER: Harbor Classic Builders

ENGINEER: Aran & Franklin Engineering

Aran & Franklin Engineering, Inc., is pleased to participate in Operation Finally Home for one of our local heroes, PFC Christopher Sullivan. We donated engineering and inspection services so that this deserving veteran can have a windstorm compliant home to enjoy with his family for many years to come. The home was designed with standard wind resistant materials, such as plywood shearwalls with embedded hold down straps, clips and fasteners for a continuous load path from the roof down and exterior siding, windows and doors that meet the 120 mph wind code for this inland location in exclusive Tuscan Lakes. Most of the materials for the project were donated, so coordination with the various suppliers and trades was vital to make sure that the right products were installed into the home and that inspections occurred as each volunteer group finished their tasks. The structural design was a very open concept plan to allow for ease of movement within the home for PFC Sullivan. Larger room spans meant glue laminated beams in the ceilings to support the roof and ceiling. The windows were impact resistant glass to prevent the family from having to put up plywood panels in case of a storm event. The A+F team is proud to have been a part of providing PFC. Sullivan’s family with a home to honor his dedication, service and sacrifice in protecting our country.
