GMS provided both Structural Engineering and Façade Consulting for this major redevelopment,
modernizing and reconfiguring the lobby, enlarging the retail spaces and updating
the building facade. A 6-story, 120,000 sf addition was installed on top, the existing
courtyards were infilled and a new lateral load system for the combined structure
was designed and built. The new overcladding was extensively tested in both the
laboratory and the field.
