SUNY Fredonia Gregory Hall Former Print Shop Rehabilitation

Fredonia, NY

Project Objective

An opening was left in the first floor of the building due to the removal of a chute and masonry enclosure. The client requested details about its infill construction.

Unique Project Features

The building was constructed in 1951 and was used as a print shop. There was a chute (slide) from the first floor to the basement, for storage of packages. The chute is not longer in use and the masonry enclosure on the first floor needed to be removed and the openings closed.

Encorus Group Solution

Encorus staff performed site visits to obtain field measurements and other information. The design included S.I.P. concrete form deck supported by steel beams, with the concrete closing the first floor opening.

Specific Project Tasks

  • Site visits to gather information and field measurements
  • Examination of existing drawings
  • Preparation for design for concrete infill material for masonry enclosure
