SE Hawthorne Fire Damage
Erickson Structural personnel were retained to assess the extent of fire damage to this three-tenant commercial building, and to provide structural remediation design services. Though the majority of the fire damage was contained to one of the tenant spaces, damage did extend to the roof structure above the adjacent tenant spaces. Erickson Structural personnel successfully designed the required structural repairs in a manner that minimized disturbance to adjacent tenant spaces. Though damaged structural components were replaced with code-compliant repairs, a full-building seismic upgrade was avoided based upon Erickson Structural personnel’ assessment of the extent of the fire damage and coordination with the City of Portland.
