New Hollingworth School

Munger Munger + Associates Architects, Inc. (Architects and Planners, in Toledo, OH) looked to A & A Engineering to provide structural engineering services to alter an existing building for this project.

This project involved the removal of part of the existing two floor structure to create space for the new gym for The Hollingworth School. A & A proposed removing the two floors and reinforcing the existing roof versus removing just the one floor structure and raising the existing roof. A & A’s proposed idea saved on the cost of a new roof and kept the project within the limited budget.

The existing roof girder beams were utilized to serve as the new truss top chord. While the existing 2nd floor structure provided a platform until the new 110’ long roof trusses were fabricated. The existing columns were used to support the new truss structure and their footings were reinforced to provide the support required. The columns in between were then removed, the floor structures were also removed and scrapped.

AREA: 30,000 Square Feet
