An existing six-story parking facility ┬áin the Upper East Side is being converted into medical offices for Mount Sinai. Stratford Engineering has designed steel framing in order to reinforce the existing structure for the building’s new purpose. Existing car elevator shafts at the building’s perimeter were infilled to create new floor space with street facing windows. A new centrally located elevator core was designed to allow for the installation of three new passenger elevators to serve the building’s new use. Additional improvements to the building include:

-New rooftop mechanical equipment
-New water tower supported above new elevator shaft
-New slab at cellar level
