RT Group, Inc. (RTG) was retained by Pustola & Associates to provide Professional Engineering Services for the renovations to an industrial building. Renovations included constructing two (2) additional stories on an existing steel framed building and two (2) new independent stair tower structures.

RTG completed the geotechnical investigation and designed the new pile supported foundations and structural slabs for the new stair towers. RTG also designed modifications to the existing buildings spread footings to accommodate the increased loading due to the additional stories.

Westchester Gov County Offices 3To minimize disruption to the existing facility (which remained in operation during construction), the owner opted to monitor the existing structure for settlement in lieu of installing proposed footing modifications. RTG provided a monitoring program utilizing strain gauges and survey control throughout the construction to provide ongoing real-time data and results. This enabled the client to make quick decisions and minimize schedule impacts.
