RT Group, Inc. (RTG) was retained by Camara Construction to assist in obtaining approval for reconstruction of an existing single family home located along the Kickamuit River in Warren, Rhode Island.  The project consisted of replacing the existing 1,200 square foot single story structure with a new 2,200 square foot (total living space) two story structure.  The new structure utilized a combination of new and existing foundation systems.

RTG worked closely with Camara Construction and the local Building Official to address all Coastal related issues and structural concerns.  The Project included typical beam and foundation design, as well as special wind and flood resistance design elements.  RTG Photo3prepared a full set of structural designs calculations and drawings including floor plans, elevations, sections, framing plans, and details.  RTG was subsequently retained by Camara to provide continued assistance during the construction phase to address client and field changes.  RTG also provided field inspections and construction documentation to facilitate a final Certificate of Completion and As-Built Drawings to meet the Building Official’s requirements.
