RenewWrap® System: Slab and Column Strengthening
January 04, 2019
One of the world's largest packaged food and beverage companies recently relocated its United States corporate headquarters to the region's tallest building in Rosslyn, VA, just across the Potomac River from the Georgetown area of Washington, D.C. The corporation retained Gensler to design a complete renovation of the lobby, mezzanine area and multiple floors within the building. To accommodate the needs of the renovation, including the installation of a prominent staircase between floors, large openings were required within the reinforced concrete floor slabs. In addition, a post-tensioned floor slab at the mezzanine level was demolished to create an impressive two-story lobby, which left a single column that measured two stories high.
