Caldwell was selected as the design-builder to make significant structural repairs to a partially completed 5-story mixed-use building in downtown Clemson. The previous contractor over-billed the owner by more than $100,000 and did not even come close to completing the building. Even worse, the structure was not built to code and was not safe for occupancy.
Caldwell Constructors hired a structural engineer to help with a solution to the inadequate structure. A 5-story exterior concrete and masonry shear wall was added to stabilize the structure, and steel plates and angles were installed and welded together throughout portions of the building to create a stronger floor system. The result was a structurally sound building that was extremely safe for occupancy.
