The beautiful historic Odd Fellows Building is located in the downtown Main Street area of Covington, VA. Schnitzhofer & Associates, LLC completed the structural evaluation study of the multi-level historic structure – in the interest of determining the adequacy of the existing floor framing to carry the floor loads as a result of the proposed renovations. Adding to the complexity of the structural analysis was the discovery of an existing built up steel beam, present at the main level ceiling area.
