27J school district wanted to improve the appearance, safety and flow of the schools’ main entrance. Complex geometry and steel framing created a stunning entrance addition for students to be proud of.
The 900 Grant Storage project created a unique design challenge in converting an existing office building into a mixed-use building that maintains storage units on the upper floor with street-facing retail and restaurant space on the ground floor. Carbon fiber technology, wrapping beams and columns, were used to provide the structural capacity to support the larger floor loads.
This existing office building was renovated into a hotel adding a pool and below-grade parking accessed by a car elevator. Creative engineering was required to dramatically increase the value and usability of this structure.
