A summertime construction project involving an addition and complete renovation of an active Syracuse University cafeteria had a very short – and firm – timeframe in which to be completed. This was the case with the Sadler Dining Hall project, completed in August 2013. Far from a standard, rectangular addition, the project included:
Klepper, Hahn & Hyatt provided full structural design services, and also served as the project’s special structural inspector, teaming with CME Associates. Having the engineer serve as inspector (for the concrete and structural steel work, in this case) allows discrepancies to be resolved quickly – frequently right on the jobsite. KHH also served as SWPPP (storm water pollution prevention plan) inspector during the course of construction.
