Renovation/Historical Retrofit


This project was a historical renovation of a courthouse that was constructed in 1934.  Areas of the original concrete floor slabs were distressed, to the extent that rebar was occasionally exposed.  We engineered repairs of damaged areas, and engineered reinforcement to accommodate storage loads.  Additionally, we engineered the reconstruction of the front and side entry stairs.
