Following a condition assessment and recommendation of demolition of the existing East Wing of Fitzhugh Hall, the principals of Laird + Smithers designed a new three-story East Wing while at a previous firm. The building is constructed of structural steel beams and columns supporting steel bar joists and concrete floors. The foundation utilizes a stiffened slab-on-grade construction with columns being supported by belled piers.
Once construction of the East Wing was underway, Laird + Smithers provided a condition assessment of the West Wing of Fitzhugh Hall. Following the condition assessment, Laird + Smithers provided construction documents for repairs and strengthening of the existing structure in order to mitigate problems that were encountered by the East Wing. During construction, Laird + Smithers provided on-site observations and construction administration services.
