The beautiful historic One East Beverley is certainly a gem of a building, situated in the heart of historic downtown Staunton, VA. Schnitzhofer & Associates, LLC are proud to have completed the structural evaluation study of the multi-level historic structure – in the interest of determining the adequacy of the existing floor and roof framing to carry the loads resulting from the proposed renovations. Through Schnitzhofer & Associates’ vast vintage structural library, we were able to determine the proper designation for each of the historic structural sections currently in place within the building, allowing for an accurate assessment of each existing historic framing member, primary or otherwise. This allowed our client a proper assessment of the structure with respect to the building material specifications and construction methods utilized at the time the building was built.
