Renovation of the long-vacant, iconic Hecht Warehouse to a mixed-use building consisting of street level retail and upper level urban lofts was a true design/build project. During construction, new plans were issued regularly, sometimes daily, while unforeseen existing conditions emerged on a regular basis.
The main scope focused on three new large atriums cut into the middle of the six-story building, allowing light to flow into the interior living units and communal areas. Hardesty Concrete “fine tuned” previous major slab demolition in order to remediate the existing rebar at the slab and beam edges, providing a framed edge extension conforming to local structural code and a clean façade edge.
Hardesty Concrete was also responsible for demolishing pockets in the existing column capitals for installation of structural steel to support the exiting slab edges at new openings.
