County Administration Center (CAC), Major Systems Renovations

BWE is providing civil design, laser scanning, and structural design for the modernization of the historic County Administration Center (CAC). BWE utilized 3-D laser scanners to efficiently collect dimensional data not otherwise available due to the age of the building and the unreliability of record drawings. Structural engineering services have included performing an ASCE 41 seismic evaluation and retrofit design of the existing structure. In addition, scanning was required to record conditions both before and after demolition. BWE is also providing civil design services that include temporary swing space to accommodate any displaced users due to renovations, even though construction occurs after hours to allow the CAC to operate during normal business hours. This complex project is phased over multiple phases in order to maintain these minimal disruptions.
