Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This project entailed a three-phase assessment of the historic Worcester County Courthouse. Phase I consisted of a preliminary structural assessment based on data acquired from plans, specifications, and historic documentation. In Phase II we verified the structural capacity of the courthouse via three-dimensional structural modeling tools accompanied by hand calculations. In Phase III we developed a rehabilitation plan in which we redesigned the courthouse as a law school that allowed for sensitivity towards the building's historical integrity.
