The major renovation design tasks noted above required an in-depth knowledge of the behavior of the existing structure and careful consideration of the details. The Klein & Hoffman team creatively took advantage of the reserve capacity in the existing structure and reinforced the elements to accommodate the new loading requirements. Our expertise in concrete repair and façade restoration and understanding of the materials’ behavior were key in the success of the project and realizing the Owner’s dream and the Architect’s objectives. In addition to various structural design software, 3-D Revit modeling was used, which proved extremely helpful in identifying conflicts ahead of time and averted major modifications during construction.
