80 Met

The five-story building at 80 Metropolitan Avenue (80 Met) and the seven-story building at 58 Metropolitan Avenue (58 Met) offer 164 loft-style condominiums and nine three-story townhouses in the heart of the Williamsburg neighborhood. The property offers a swimming pool, gym, decks and courtyards, and below-grade parking. SGH was the structural engineer of record for the two residential buildings and townhouses.

 

Scope | Solutions

 

SGH designed the reinforced masonry and precast concrete structures and prepared construction documents for the structural work. Highlights of our design include the following:

  • Reinforced concrete masonry walls and precast concrete plank to help reduce sound transmission between floors

  • Steel-framed podium level to span over below-grade parking

  • Support for the exterior facades, including curtain walls adjacent to the interior courtyard at 58 Met

  • Communal space and privacy walls for cabana spaces on the 80 Met rooftop

 

We also performed construction phase services, including the following:

  • Reviewed structural shop drawings and submittals to compare with the design intent

  • Responded to contractor requests for information

  • Observed ongoing construction to compare with project requirements

  • Designed field repairs to address construction deficiencies

  • Designed interior modifications for several unit
