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.

In 1997, when a major fire engulfed the building, the building housed office and retail space. The day after the fire, the owner’s insurance company retained SGH to assess the safety of the building and advise the town on securing the site.
The Victor, a newly-constructed, luxury apartment building located near the TD Bank North Garden, serves as a neighborhood connection between the Bullfinch Triangle area and the North End. SGH provided building enclosure consulting services for the project.
