Alexander Restoration

This adaptive re-use of a former Florida winter residence hotel into an office and retail structure was based on National Park Service guidelines for a certified restoration. Planning efficiencies resulted when the interior wood-bearing walls were replaced with steel columns and beams. This system permitted retention of undersized wood floor joists by also reducing their span, thereby allowing the heavier, code required loads of office use.
