Project Description

This project involved redevelopment of an existing warehouse into retail stores, inclusive of lowering the 1st floor concrete slab elevation which currently sits 3 ft above the existing sidewalk elevation.
In 2017 GRANT was contracted to provide a structural assessment, including as-built structural design drawings. GRANT conducted site visits to assess the property conditions and provided detailed reports and surveys. Grant was then contracted to perform a geotechnical investigation, which lead to the oversight and photo logging of 13 test pits and a recommendations report.
Following redevelopment, GRANT was again contracted to provide another conditions assessment along with a structural engineering design for necessary repairs and retrofits required to eliminate structural deficiencies and lift violations identified by NYCDOB. Lastly, GRANT was contracted for completion of an asbestos survey in accordance with NYCRR Part 56 to determine the possible presence of Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) prior to any renovation or demolition work.
