Served as Structural Engineer of Record and Agent 1 Special Inspector for a 300-foot tall high-rise comprised of 465,000 square feet. The existing project site included 3 historical buildings that were 2 and 3 stories tall; all but the front façade was demolished. The front façade needed to be protected, shored, and reattached to the new building. Work included excavating 2 stories below the existing buildings and underpinning them. The new 27-story tower was constructed and the historical façade was then reattached to act as the street-side façade for the new building. The new mixed-use building, the second tallest in Durham, includes a 177-space two-story parking garage below grade, four floors of retail (22,000 square feet), and Class A offices (130,000 square feet); and 23 condos and 117 luxury apartments on the upper 21 stories. A private dog park is conveniently located on the 6th floor. A clubroom and rooftop pool occupy the 27th-floor offering stunning views of downtown Durham. Post-tensioned concrete construction. Designed using REVIT. $88M estimated construction cost. www.onecitycenter.com
