Structural Engineering, Renovation, Repair & Restoration
Ryan Biggs | Clark Davis provided the structural design of renovations and upgrades to Sanford Hall, a 47,000-square-foot building built in the 1960s. The building has outdated building systems and energy efficiency, as well as an outdated aesthetic.
The structural work included seismic upgrade including installing new shear walls, bracing, and foundations, and support for new photovoltaic array panels.
Our scope also included upgrades to the exterior envelope and restoration of the existing masonry. The restoration included removal and reanchoring stone, repointing mortar joints, and cleaning of the existing stone.
The project also involved renovations to the library wing. The original library wing was converted into a large, high-tech classroom with tiered seating. The wing also contains a student lounge and coffee shop. We also provided structural design for a new entrance canopy and plaza and the structural supports for rooftop mechanical equipment.
The project centralized facilities for the School of Nursing and the Business Departments.
