A Replacement Detail

by Don Friedman on April 5, 2012

We’ve shown a few old details that we like, but of course we also design new details to repair or replace the old.

We’re still working on that large facade project, and our detail for a new outrigger system to support an upper-floor water-table has been installed.

The spandrel beam is on the right, with some interesting bolt patterns at the interior connections; the wood is shoring holding up the masonry above the removal area off the masonry below the removal area, and the shiny things are our new stainless-steel brackets. The horizontal portion will carry new terra cotta blocks for the replacement water-table; the verticals are present to engage more of the spandrel than just the web to cary the cantilevered horizontals.
