This will be an interesting story of a curtain wall remediation that began as one of the worst panel systems comprised of 33’ long composite panels that experienced up to 1” of movement during a typical day.  After previous attempts to paint and seal the building made the problem worse and hastened the delamination of the exterior panel skin, the owner hired Simpson, Gumpertz, Heger, Inc.

474 N. Lake Shore Drive - Parking Garage Renovation & Expansion Joint Repairs
Our Trinity-Award winning restoration initiative at 474 N. Lake Shore Drive was broad and included many work items.  Chiefly among those were providing dust enclosures for a 13-story structure, performing all manner of concrete patch repairs, replacing expansion joints, installing sealant and Traffic-Bearing Membrane, and finishing with line-striping.  Even though these conditions evolved and interrupted our schedule, we were still able to return the garage to ownership two weeks early.

4th Street Parking Garage - 2019WT

Code: 2019WT

The City of Santa Monica operates a series of high-traffic parking garages that serve the popular 3rd Street Mall shopping venue that began to display deflection and cracking after years of service. When the structural engineer was retained to investigate, he immediately "red-tagged” the first structure and brought in a contractor to install emergency shoring so that the city maintenance department could to continue to operate in the first floor where they had their central operations, not to mention keep the upper access lanes open to ensure the parking revenue stream from the upper five floors. Pawan Gupta, PE SE PhD of Walter P. Moore & Associates and Kelly McBride of Century Building Solutions, Inc. will present an analysis of the project which discovered that the lack of waterproofing and exposure to the ocean environment only a few blocks away had resulted in severe deterioration of the post-tension cables and forced an expensive and unplanned remediation repair.

Through powerful imagery, historical connection, and motivational stories, she highlights work at Pearl Harbor, Alcatraz Island, and Pointe du Hoc, Normandy, France, demonstrating how timing is critical for durable structures and our industry’s need to redefine workforce development – particularly with regard to military veterans - as a new market with new rules. The non-profit CPI Foundation is an official US military active duty Career Skills Program, partner of the National Park Service, and partner of industry companies and associations such as SWR Institute whose support makes CPI’s programs possible.

A Monumental Priority: Restoring Historic Landmarks with Craftsmanship and Respect - 2016FT

Code: 2016FT

Only 160 feet long and with a 14 foot-wide walking surface, the Burnside Bridge is a classic three-arched beautiful piece of masonry, and also happens to be the site of one of the bloodiest skirmishes in American history. In September of 1862 during the Civil War Battle of Antietam, over 500 Union soldiers lost their lives under the command of Maj. Gen. Ambrose Burnside. For over a hundred years the bridge has remained a historic monument to those lives lost. However, in January of 2014, parts of the bridge collapsed into the Antietam Creek, and a quick renovation project soon revealed much more serious problems.

A Rapidly Changing Climate: Threat – and Opportunity - 2017FT

Code: 2017FT

Paul Douglas, Total Weather, LLC
For over 20 years I’ve been seeing the symptoms of a warmer, wetter, more volatile climate showing up in the weather patterns above Minnesota, the nation and the planet. I started connecting the dots, publicly, in the late 90s, before Al Gore came out with his documentary on climate change. There is compelling data - multiple strands of evidence – confirming a planetary warming trend is now well underway. CO2 levels are higher than they’ve been in at least 3 million years, a time when sea level was 75 feet higher than today. Is this just a natural cycle; how can we be sure it’s man-made this time? Where is the evidence?

The climate is changing, it’s us – and there are solutions. A disruptive, clean energy revolution will gradually, methodically wean us off the fossil fuels responsible for the bulk of the warming we see all around us. More Americans will get on board, as solar, wind, energy storage and countless other new, clean technologies provide more energy, at less cost, with far fewer unpleasant side effects. Climate volatility and weather disruption will continue to increase. Everything we create will have to be more resilient, storm-resistant, flood-tolerant and drought-proof; from how we design our cities, build our homes, repair our roads to how we grow our crops. There will be dislocation, but Minnesota will make out considerably better than most of the United States, for a variety of reasons. Solutions won’t come from Big Government, but from the markets - entrepreneurs inventing new, carbon-free ways to keep the lights on, the economy powered up and people employed. The world isn’t ending, it’s warming. That brings benefits and risk, threats and opportunities. There’s no time for gloom and doom. The situation isn’t hopeless – and we aren’t helpless.

Adaptive Re-use and Restoration of the old Childs’ Restaurant, Coney Island, NY - 2017FT

Code: 2017FT

Dan Tyler, Pullman SST, Inc., Yasmine Elrashidy, Pullman SST, Inc., & Diane Kaese, Kaese & Lynch Architecture and Engineering
Pre-Construction started in the fall of 2014. The amphitheater and park opened in the summer of 2016. The remaining restaurant dining room opened in spring of 2017. However, it wasn’t all that easy.  The building was constructed in 1923 and landmarked in 2002.  The building is significant for both its social history related to the restaurant/service industry as well as its magnificent terra cotta ornament. It has endured over 90 years of changing tides of man and Mother Nature.  This left the building with deteriorated masonry and steel as well as asbestos, biological growth and other man-made changes.  Restrictions on access to the site narrowed investigation options prior to construction. Replacement materials were specified generically and confirmed after the actual conditions were assessed.  Luckily, construction didn’t yield many physical surprises but rather endless scheduling and supply challenges.  The project team took both traditional and non-traditional approaches to address the numerous challenges presented to complete the project.
