As Spyder began the fire restoration process at Telluride Condominiums, work exposed a serious structural problem with the rim joists below the fire-damaged units. Further exploration revealed damage extended around the entire building. As safety is paramount at Spyder, we alerted the property owner of the problem and brought in a structural engineering firm to assess the extent of the damage and provide a remedy.
As is sometimes the case when a construction contractor discovers a secondary structural problem unrelated to the cause of the restoration, a structural engineering firm was brought in to draft a repair plan and handed that blueprint over to Spyder to make the repairs.
The structural problem with the rim joists required Spyder to lift large sections of the building so that the failing framing support system could be replaced. The repairs were completed on time, within budget, and with as little impact to the HOA and individual unit owners as possible.View Project PDF
