TFMoran Structural Engineers provided design services for the Concord Housing Authority Crutchfield Apartments retrofit project in Concord, New Hampshire, which was featured in the Green Energy Times October issue! Resilient Buildings Group (RBG) of Concord, NH built a team for the Crutchfield Apartments project that included TFMoran for structural engineering.
Some barriers for the project deserved extra attention. The fact that the building is constructed of concrete modules presented difficulties that could not be addressed without careful planning, including a detailed investigation of the structure. The concrete floors include cores and steel prestressing strands, which needed to be located. Some of the installation required drilling holes in the floors, walls, or ceilings, and drilling through prestress strands can compromise an entire building.
Since the new heating system was to be mounted on the roof, this location placement required additional planning to verify that the roof was properly reinforced to manage the weight.
