Key CSI Projects Involving Building Facades

Ft. Zachary Taylor-Structural Stabilization

Owner:       State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection

Location:   Key West, FL

Engineer/Architect:  Bender & Associates

CSI was contracted to perform the Structural Stabilization of the Historic Barracks Building at Fort Zachary Taylor in Key West, Florida.

Since this fort is one of the seven National Historic Sites located in the State of Florida, there was a heightened sensitivity regarding protection of the property.

The Scope of Work included but was not limited to:

Furnish and erect temporary shoring of the attic roof slab; Install required helical soil anchors to an approx. 30 thirty-ft. depth; Install large heavy timber angle bracing of the unstable brick façade on the West Elevation of the barracks building.

This project was completed several months ahead of schedule and on budget.
