PROJECT OVERVIEW
The project consisted of a 2600 sq. ft. maintenance building and 1500 sq. ft. storage building, as well as significant site work associated with parking facilities adjacent to established wetlands. In addition, approximately 800 l.f. of structurally deficient masonry estate wall was reconstructed along Halidon Avenue. The maintenance facility is designed with flexi-core structural slabs for heavy loading. Additions to the project included retaining walls and renovations to the existing boat house. Work on the wall included demolition of the existing, failing structure, as well as salvage of all terra-cotta tiles for re-use in the newly designed structure.
