The Eisenhower Barracks, originally built in 1968, is a multi-story structure that house cadets at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York. The academy is modernizing its barracks under the West Point Cadet Barracks Upgrade Program.
STRUCTURAL was contracted to help the modernization of the core building structure by providing installation and design support for carbon fiber and other strengthening systems, as well as a variety of concrete repairs.
Crews installed over 75,000 square feet of STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES’ V-Wrap™ externally bonded strengthening system to the slabs throughout the structure. A customized Design and QA/QC plan were also developed and included FRP tensile pull-off tests that were completed daily throughout the installation process.
STRUCTURAL also assisted in the design and completed the construction of 99 shear capitals to strengthen the structure.
Other scope items included infill of existing openings, general concrete spall repairs, slab crack repairs and construction of new trench systems.
