Sinnott Building

This historical three-story, unreinforced masonry building, located in Portland, Oregon, was declared a “dangerous building” by the City of Portland Bureau of Development Services.  Nine specific responsibilities were identified by the City of Portland that the building owner was required to address, two of which prompted the involvement of a structural engineer.   Erickson Structural personnel were retained to address the deficiencies associated with portions of the parapet braces and cornices.  Erickson Structural personnel performed site visits to observe existing conditions during the construction of the repairs and developed construction documents depicting the temporary structural remediation of the parapet braces and cornices.
