Downtown Investors

Red Bank, NJ

The heavy timber trusses that supported the roof of this building were in a state of collapse after a heavy snowstorm. Dajon Associates was hired to install emergency shoring and then later to provide a long-term repair to the trusses. We were hired to do the structural design for the repairs. We scabbed laminated veneer lumber members (an engineered wood product that is much stronger than heavy timber) to both sides of the top and bottom chords of the trusses and we reinforced the critical connections. With repairs completed, the roof trusses can withstand the heavy loads from New Jersey snowstorms.
