Mixed-use commercial and residential structure in East York
This existing one storey commercial building was renovated with two additional stories added over the existing structure. This structure features a commercial space on the main floor and two stories of residential units over. The existing structure is constructed of concrete block load-bearing walls on conventional concrete foundations. The new structure over is constructed of engineered wood floor/roof joists and beams. Exterior walls are constructed of light gage steel studs supported over the existing block below.
Modified existing UHaul warehouse
This project featured an existing one storey warehouse structure with a roof height of approximately 15’-0” above grade. In order to achieve an increased storage capacity in lieu of increasing floor space, the client decided to raise the existing roof structure an additional 5’-0” resulting in an overall height to the roof structure of approximately 20’-0” above grade. This was achieved by strategically shoring and temporarily supporting the structure and modifying the existing structure by either replacing existing columns with new columns and/or reinforcing existing columns
