We help clients repair structural damage or deterioration, perform alterations, or enhance structures to meet current code. Our services support needs ranging from tenant improvements, repairing deteriorated sidewalk vaults, plazas and aging parking facilities, to complex structural upgrades and full building gut-renovation, modernization or adaptive reuse. We are also experts in advanced computational analysis for special-load demands such as blast forces, vehicular impact, seismic events and hurricanes.
We have specialized expertise in historic and vintage structures, spanning 150 years of construction – from unreinforced masonry to terra cotta arch slabs and cast iron columns. We understand that context-sensitive repair solutions require experience and innovative approaches to overcome the challenges posed by archaic construction systems. We use advanced analytical methods to help arrive at innovative code-compliant rehabilitation strategies that best meet your objectives. We develop sensible, project-appropriate approaches, which have included schemes such as reducing material weight to lessen demand, using effective alternatives like fiber-reinforced polymers, concealment of reinforcement behind historic finishes, and the integration of supplementary diaphragms and internal framing.
