Hugo Boss Retail Space Expansion Washington, DC
Modifications to the first floor retail space included supporting the existing second floor with new beams, posts and footings. Structural services consisted of consulting with the architect and the contractor to detemine alternative structural designs to support both the new tenant work and to strengthen the existing structure.
Apple Federal Credit Union
Structural and architectural design for the $3 million renovation of the existing two-story, 10,000 SF bank facility and addition of 4,400 SF of office space and a drive-thru teller window. Construction was completed in 2006.
Sur la Table
Renovation of an existing 75-year-old retail space with roof-top parking for the Seattle-based architect and owner. Structural modifications included demolition of the street-side façade.
The renovation of the existing retail/office space required the coordination of new kitchen equipment, exhaust and ventilation systems within the existing building structure. This project is one of five Fuddrucker's restaurant projects that Olde Town Engineering Company has completed.
Originally designed as the South Riding Branch of F&M Bank, the 3,000 SF bank branch includes covered drive-through teller lanes. Structural framing system is designed primarily of wood studs and trusses. Completed in 1998, the estimated construction cost: $360,000.
Virginia Savings Bank Front Royal, VA
The 4,500 SF two-story facility has been designed utilizing standard wood construction. The wood framing is supported on reinforced concrete spread footngs and the first floor slab is supported on grade.
Our project experience with commercial retail building design and renovation has brought us many challenging structural engineering problems in need of timely solutions. Many of the proposed building modifications involved structural repair due to damage and/or neglect by owners and tenants. When such damages are discovered during our investigation phase, the replacement and strengthening of the damaged structural components necessarily precedes design of the proposed building modifications.
