We recently completed a project with a leading construction management and general contracting company with offices located throughout the east coast. The company was contracted for a project by Brandeis University which is located in Waltham, Massachusetts. One aspect of the project was to create ADA compliant access for one of the buildings on the University’s campus. There were existing concrete steps and an existing rock retaining wall that Brandeis University wanted to keep, so it was challenging to design a modular ramp that could maneuver around these structures. However, with precise measurements provided by the contractors and our engineers’ experience and design capabilities, we were able to construct a metal wheelchair ramp that fit perfectly within the designated area. There was minor reconstruction of the rock retaining wall, but ultimately it remained in tact and in its original formation.
