RACE was contracted by HPHV Direct, LLC to provide professional engineering services related to the rehabilitation of a significantly deteriorated timber public access boardwalk at an office complex in Stamford, CT. The boardwalk is a 1,260 foot long structure supported by approximately 446 concrete foundation elements. RACE performed a detailed structural inspection of the existing foundation system, timber framing, handrail, and ancillary components to determine the viability of potential repair and reuse of these elements. Due to the advanced deterioration and unsuitability of the structural elements for the desired live load condition, it was determined that RACE would design a new structure to accommodate Client specifications and appropriate load combinations required by Building Code.
