Building Design Upgrade

Owner: B.O.K. Technology Center

System: FRP/Carbon Strips

Completed: 2000


This building was sold and the new owners needed to beef up the structural capacity of the floors due to needing to move in a large number of heavy filing cabinets.  Carbon fiber strips were designed to increase the load capacity of the floor.  CSC applied the carbon fiber strips on the top surface of the slab and the underside of the slab.  Upon completion fire proofing was applied to the underside of the elevated slab.
