Projects that involve the rehabilitation or adaptive reuse of a structure often present unique challenges to the design team. Larson Engineering is equipped with the expertise to develop the innovative structural solutions required to make these restorations possible. Larson Engineering has served as an integral part of design teams across the country to preserve our historic and cultural heritage.
Adaptive reuse of historic buildings of various materials and construction types
Seismic retrofit of lateral force resisting system to meet current building codes
Work with architect and owner to provide structural design without affecting the historical character of the building
Integration of new structural system with remaining portion of partially collapsed building
Assessment of structures damaged due to natural events such as fire, flood, wind and seismic activity
Evaluations of structures damaged by a man made event such as explosions and vehicle collisions
Evaluations of existing roof structures to support new or modified mechanical rooftop equipment
