Structural Engineers Association of Georgia (SEAOG) Award
CONGRATULATIONS to Chris Murphy, Allen Morris, and Pierre Coiron of Stability Engineering for receiving a Merit Award from the Structural Engineers Association of Georgia (SEAOG) in mid-April for work on the Historic Barn at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit (Conyers, Georgia). We provided structural design services, performed extensive non-destructive testing and analysis of the wood framing, and designed a custom steel frame to stabilize the barn structure. We also provided direction for securing the existing brick veneer and replacing the floor slab on grade. These methods allowed us to maintain the majority of the original wood structure, updating the historic barn while maintaining its antique charm and historic value.
The purpose of the Excellence in Structural Engineering Awards is to recognize structural engineers in the state of Georgia who demonstrate a high caliber of creativity, dedication, innovation, and ingenuity in the work they perform. The architect for this project was Cooper Pierce from Jones Pierce Architects and the contractor was Gay Construction. Please join me in congratulating Chris, Allen, and Pierre.
