Clearing the Way at 600 Massachusetts Ave.

April 14, 2014

Preparations have begun in clearing the site along Massachusetts Avenue for a new, multi-story commercial office building.  SK&A is providing structural engineering services for the development of the new office structure, designed by the architectural firm, CORE.

The full implementation of the project’s design requires the relocation of two side-by-side, three-story historic townhouses situated in the middle of the site to the project site’s outer edge. Expert House Movers, a contractor specializing in the relocation of historic structures, was selected to carefully execute the repositioning of the townhouses.  The relocated structures are being moved to a foundation system designed by SK&A.  To read more about the project, click here: 600 Massachusetts Avenue, NW.
