Our team provided multiple services that catered to our expertise as a firm in the adaptive-reuse sector. Structural engineering services spanned from removing entire floors, infilling basements, providing new stair and elevator shaft openings, to strengthening the floor with a bonded overlay and providing concrete restoration work for the deteriorated framing system. Also provided were façade services – including restoration drawings, details, and meeting with the Historic Preservation representatives to find exact matches for the replacement bricks and terra-cotta elements. The owner valued K&H’s services to the point that they requested we step in to assist the design team at the adjacent Rosenwald Flats, a concurrent renovation of wood-framed three flat buildings on the northeast corner of the property.
