When construction ends, a building’s life is just beginning, and its uses, functions, technologies, and requirements change over time. Structural modifications and alterations, such as slab penetrations for new communicating stairs and shafts, beam and column strengthening for heavier loads, and new lateral load systems for improved seismic resistance may be required. We have extensive experience designing a variety of modifications, from 150-year-old brick arches to new carbon fiber reinforcement, for both contemporary and historical structural systems.
