Nablus has played an important role in modern life of the Palestinians due to its importance in the residential and educational aspects. Many important projects have been constructed in this city such as KFC restaurant which is the largest KFC branch in Palestine. In this project we are going to design the building of KFC restaurant for gravity and seismic loads which is located near Al-Academia street. The building is proposed of three floors with a height of 3.25m for the basement floor and the ground floor and 4.25 m for the first floor with an approximate area of 497 m2 for each floor. In this project we are supposed to learn how to assume the preliminary dimensions of slabs , beams, columns and any structural element that will be used in this building and design different parts(beams , stairs, columns and slabs) to resist gravity loads such as dead, super imposed , snow and live load also to resist lateral loads such as seismic load. The main objective of this project that to be able to design the building with all its parts to resist static and dynamic loads taking into consideration the engineering standards and realistic constraints including economic; environmental; sustainability; manufacturability; ethical; health and safety; social; and political. The design will be according to the following codes and specifications: IBC 2012 , ASCE7-10, ACI318-14 and Jordanian code and we will use ETABS 2016 and SAFE to model and design this project and compare the results from program with our manual calculations and do checks to make sure that the building is stable and the building is correctly modeled.
