Performed various structural engineering tasks for over 20 Baltimore City Public Schools including: media center renovations, earthquake damage inspections, repairs to historic structures, building additions, window replacements, and mechanical system upgrades.
Some media centers locations include: Calverton Elementary School, Canton Middle School, Poly Technical Institute, Franklin Square Elementary School, and John Eager Howard Elementary School. Structural design work consisted of support of new equipment, relocation of existing columns, and modifications to the existing structure. Design was based on limited as-built plans and existing construction had undergone various past renovations.
Scope of work for upgrades to the mechanical and electrical system consisted of multiple site visits, a non-destructive evaluation of the structure, the evaluation of the existing roof or floor structure for the support mechanical equipment, design of dunnage or concrete pad for equipment, details for openings in the roof for penetrations, openings in the wall for up to wall penetrations.
