Renovation and Repair
Renovation LEC offers structural engineering services for the renovation or rehabilitation of existing structures. Our registered professional engineers provide structural design documents for a wide variety of projects.

Renovation refers to the modification of an existing building.
A common renovation is removing interior walls to open up a floor plan.

Repair fixes a building after it has suffered damage.
Typically repairs happen after a fire or hurricane.

Retrofit is when an existing building is strengthened to better resist damage from
a particular source, such as high winds. This is sometimes called strengthening or hardening.

Adaptive re-use is when the structure is modified to support a different function.
An example would be an old fire station being turned into a library.
