The Details

The redevelopment involves the complete renovation of an existing four-story, 92,000 square foot steel-framed building that was originally constructed in 1981. The entire building skin and interior walls have been removed to reveal the steel frame structure. The project also consists of a new precast parking deck providing approximately 380 parking spaces and site improvements including public plazas, gathering spaces, significant landscaping, surface parking lot improvements, water and sewer upgrades.

Highlights of the renovation include a new façade over the entire building perimeter, a 2-story glass atrium space which is to serve as the building lobby, and a new pedestrian bridge connecting the building to the new parking structure. Two new stair towers and a 1-story monumental stair were integrated into the building. In addition, an architectural roof-top wall system spans the entire length of the building and parking deck, creating a visual relationship between the two structures.

With regards to structural design, an intensive analysis of the existing structure was conducted. Several modifications were made to the existing structure. These modifications included removing entire bays of framing, creating large openings in the floors, and removing the entire skin of the existing building and replacing it with a new façade. Due to the extents of the modifications, the existing structure was analyzed per the most recent building codes and design standards, including wind and seismic loads, as required by the North Carolina Building Code. Portions of the floor framing and lateral system required additional structure in order to meet updated code requirements.
