Project Description

The Site building was constructed in 1921 and is currently a 10-floor commercial office space. GRANT’s role in this property has been related to the building façade over the past few years. GRANT was initially contracted by the client to provide a façade inspection for compliance with Local Law 11 and prepare TR6 / FBI1 documentation for submission.
Following on from those services GRANT was contracted on a few occasions to provide structural design and construction administration for the repair of the façade to resolve structural deficiencies along with required Local Law 11 Inspections related to the work. GRANT also provided third-party construction inspection service to oversee the specialty contractor and ensure compliance with the approved construction documents and applicable New York City Building Code.
