LOCATION: WILMINGTON, NC

During a regular facility condition assessment of the Randal Library, UNCW discoved severe corrosion of structural members supporting the library entrance. Atlas Engineering was brought in to assess the severity of the damage and to design the structural repairs. During the assessment, Atlas discovered that a lack of waterproofing for the structure’s perimeter was the root cause of the corrosion. Atlas designed structural and waterproofing repairs to prevent future corrosion.

FEMA funded a Natural Disaster Vulnerability Study for major laboratory, dormitory, and sports arena structures at the UNC Chapel Hill campus. Atlas Engineering identified wind, seismic, and flood vulnerabilities for nine buildings, and provided cost estimates for upgrades with high-payback in reduced disaster costs.

Transform Pit Grating Structural Modifications

LOCATION: CHAPEL HILL, NC

Transformer and high-voltage switiching gear for the UNC-CH dental school was set in an underground pit next to the building. UNC-CH had a need to rapidly replace these units in the event of a failure in order to maintain operations. The original construction of the grating over the pit did not permit for rapid remove. Atlas Engineering designed structural modifications to grating to create rapidly-removable panels that can be lifted with the same crane used to change the electrical units.
