Designed by Shreve, Lamb, and Harmon, 130 Liberty Street opened in 1974 as Bankers Trust Plaza and was later renamed when Deutsche Bank acquired the financial institution. Located adjacent to the World Trade Center, the 42-story office building was significantly damaged and contaminated by the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
We were retained to provide structural design services related to the planning, engineering and deconstruction for the building, which completed in 2011.
- Deconstruction engineering for the systematic removal of the structure was phased in conjunction with the environmental abatement of the building.
- Our experts analyzed the building in its damaged state and designed bracing and shoring to stabilize the structure.
- We also initially surveyed the building immediately after the September 11, 2001 attacks.
