Alberta Street Building Restoration
This mixed-use commercial building located on Alberta St., in Northeast Portland, went through construction defect litigation after numerous design and construction issues affected the structure. I&E was hired to perform building envelope repair due to those defects; a secondary goal was to improve the overall aesthetic design of the building. By directly working with the Owner and Architect, I&E was able to develop a design-build solution that would meet the aesthetic goals, while increasing the buildings functional layout. These solutions included a redesign of the roof assembly and underlying structure, an increase of street-facing door sizes to allow a storefront system with roll-up glass doors, an improved cladding and facade to add visual interest and most importantly, a high-quality building envelope system.
