Eleven Waverly Place, Greenwich Village, New York City.
Agassi Consulting Engineers, in a joint-venture with Bond Street Architecture & Design, led the investigation, engineering, and restoration of this 12-story building in New York’s historic Greenwich Village. The project included complete scope of engineering, architectural, and construction management services needed to restore the building’s structural integrity and preserve its architectural character. It also included innovative roof reconstruction by jacking. This novel method, the first of its kind, avoided more costly and time-consuming reinforcing and replacement schemes, prevented disruption to vital building services, minimized demolition, and ensured the building remain occupied and fully operational throughout construction. Detailed articles on the project appear in Modern Steel Construction, February 2008 and in Structure, May 2008.
