During the design of this structural wall repair, temporary scaffold support and replacement stucco facade system, Marx|Okubo overcame a number of challenges.
Working with difficult access points due to the adjacent property’s historic status and weak load-carrying capacity, we designed a repair protocol for corroded, proprietary, high-strength steel pencil-rod studs with rigid cast-in-place cavity insulation.
In addition, our team performed empirical design and proof-testing of the stucco facade system’s lateral support attachment. Our services allowed this building to continue operations with minimal disruption to tenants and building users.
