Built in 1982, the Ocean Club Condominium building abuts the board walk in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The overall complex consists of twin thirty-six story, concrete framed towers, joined at the base by a five-story structure incorporating a parking garage as well as various amenity and commercial spaces. On the 5th floor of the joining base structure in an outdoor plaza deck and pool enclosure. While the location and views are dramatic, the complex faces the direct impact from the high oceanic winds.


Professional Services

A high-wind event resulted in damage to a portion of the existing pool enclosure assembly. The extent of damage necessitated substantial structural repairs and code required upgrades. Ultimately a new pool enclosure was required. K&H provided architectural and structural engineering services for the new pool enclosure.

K&H initially worked with the Association to remove the damaged structure while allowing continued use of the pool during its regular operating season. K&H’s replacement design solution worked within the original footprint, modifying any remaining portions of the original structure to incorporate it both functionally and esthetically into the final design. Finally, a framing color and glass package were selected to complement the existing building esthetics, while providing an energy efficient, high performance solution.
