Challenge Accepted

“One of the challenges we faced was the 70+ year-old structure, which had to be completely redone to support all of the new construction to meet current code requirements. The prefabricated framing members that were ordered from shop drawings had to be field modified to accommodate the added structural supports that were not shown on the plans. The elliptical barrel vault had to be stretched width-wise to enclose the added scissor trusses that were required to support the roof.”
