Project Description

The existing building, which will host a Chick-Fil-A restaurant, has two floors, a penthouse, and a cellar. GRANT was contracted by the client to perform all required DOB special inspections and a pre-construction conditions assessment. Our team provided a full structural assessment report, with photo-log and recommendations for monitoring activities. GRANT was then contracted to provide crack monitoring and 24-hour continuous vibration monitoring to verify that construction activities did not negatively impact the structural stability of adjacent buildings or the existing structure.
