Hershey Medical Center Façade Rehabilitation
Penn State Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA
Stahl Sheaffer teamed with a façade renovation specialty contractor at Penn State’s Hershey Medical Center for a project to rehab portions of the building façade. As part of this project, Stahl Sheaffer surveyed the existing facility to understand the building structure and designed roof top davits to support façade access equipment (swing stages). The design was made more complex by a minimal existing structure which needed to be braced and reinforced to accommodate the OSHA required applied load to the roof top davits. When required, Stahl Sheaffer has strong relationships with façade rehabilitation specialists with whom we partner to complete investigative demolition to determine depth or underlying cause of visible problems.
