In Construction: Gramercy Townhouse Structural Work

Installation of a new steel moment frame and reinforced concrete grade beam is almost complete at our townhouse renovation!  The new structural elements will allow for a full width opening with three sets of steel framed doors leading out to the rear garden.

Master Level Steel Beam

We’ve also installed a new steel beam on the Master Level, allowing removal of a pier between the Master Bedroom and a Sitting Room on the south side of the building.  The pier was once part of the building’s rear facade before an extension was added years ago.  Ever since, plan layouts have been constrained by the openings which were once the original window locations.  With the addition of the new beam, the two rooms will function far better spatially and the bedroom will have more direct access to the light and air of the southern windows.
