JAX Chamber Renovation
Auld & White was retained by the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce to transform its office into “Downtown’s New Front Door.” Phase 1 of the project included the demolition of the first floor ceilings, walls and slabs that were structurally compromised. The solution for the sinking required the installation of more than 100 helical piles and grade beams. A new roof and structural entry canopy as well as the renovation of all three floors were completed in Phase II. A significant structural slab redesign took place DURING CONSTRUCTION as walls, foundations and other century-old debris were found upon the removal of the building’s existing slab on grade. Sustainable elements of this project include the recycling of nearly 7,000 sf of concrete, a “cool” roof, refurbished solar panels and DIRTT wall systems.
I would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to the Auld & White team for their involvement in making the JAX Chamber Building and Site Renovations project a resounding success.
