Description

The Building was renovating a whole floor for a new tenant.  They wanted to convert the existing roof deck to a roof balcony for the tenant to access. The complexity of this project was that the engineer wanted to utilize the existing guardrail brackets to install a new glass guardrail system.  At first glance the existing guardrail brackets appeared to be structurally sound.  We fabricated a custom stand to fit over the existing guardrail brackets to test them as a system.  The testing revealed that the brackets could not support the requirements of the new guardrail system.  With this information the engineer had to redesign a new glass guardrail system.
