Emergency Design Services for Soffit & Eave Repairs
Development One provided emergency design services for an assessment of failing roof eaves and soffits at the Historic Chet Holifield Federal Building.
The assessment was addressed in two phases. Development One visited the site in phase one to survey the soffit areas of the building. Photo documentation was taken of the various conditions of degradation. In the initial report, the design team identified the extent of the observed damage. The second phase incorporated feedback from GSA and included solutions for semi-permanent repair.
The Chet Holifield building has been nominated to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. As such, the repairs needed to be in keeping with the principles of historic preservation. The design team has created details for temporary support which works within the GSA historical architectural guidelines to ensure the repair assembly details are consistent with the requirements of historic preservation.
