+ ADA upgrades
+ T24 and seismic upgrades
+ Demolition of existing showers
+ Framing and drywall replacement
+ Complete interior renovations
Severe structural framing damage at the communal showers was exposed due to the extensive daily use. In addition, each bathroom had to be reconfigured to accommodate the required ADA bathroom.
To resolve the water damage, we had to shore up the existing 3 story building stack and remove the structural floor components along with the sections of shear wall and replace with new framing members and seismic upgrades. Plumbing, drains and alarm devices were relocated to accommodate the ADA reconfiguration.
We worked with the client to engineer the best solution to resolve the unforeseen bathroom challenges. Remaining interior renovations were completed as scheduled.
