Project Description

Located in the Financial District, this old masonry structure has been converted into a unique, four story Chick-fil-A restaurant with a penthouse. GRANT was contracted by the client to perform all special inspections, a pre-construction conditions assessment, crack monitoring, and 24-hour continuous vibration monitoring to verify that construction activities did not negatively impacting the structural stability of adjacent buildings, the existing structure or Transit Authority infrastructure, as the lot is within the area of influence of the Fulton Center subway station. The new structure is a combination of existing masonry-bearing walls supported by a series of steel beams, columns and concrete slabs providing adequate lateral and normal stress resistance to the structure.
