Renovation Design

When renovating an existing building, the project success is critical to integrating the new work into the existing building structure. We investigate and learn how the existing building is constructed, so that we can plan and design structural modifications and new structural elements to be incorporated into the renovation work. Change of building use can also impact design load requirements for the new occupancy, so our services include performing load capacity evaluations of the existing structure to ascertain if structural upgrades are required to meet the new load demand. Our structural design of the renovations is performed in a manner that seeks to integrate the new structural components in a manner and using methods compatible with the existing structure.
