Adapted in the 1970s, the Mercantile Wharf Building now includes four levels of apartments over ground-floor retail space. SGH completed a condition assessment of the timber-framed and masonry bearing wall structure.
SGH surveyed exterior and interior masonry walls, wood framing, the framing’s bearing conditions on the walls, and the basement slab-on-grade.
After documenting damage and determining the causes of distress, we tabulated and categorized the conditions. To assist the property manager in their maintenance planning, SGH recommended remedial work, prioritized it as immediate or future repairs, and suggested long-term monitoring for certain items.
