High-Efficiency Waterfront Home

Comments Off on High-Efficiency Waterfront Home

Project Information

Coastal River Engineering provided guidance to a client building a 3800 SF, multi-story home on Intra-Coastal Waterway in utilizing sprayed foam insulation throughout the structure to ensure superior thermal performance. The Building Department required a review of the HVAC design to mitigate concerns about the potential lack of humidity control. Our recommendations led to a more balanced HVAC load and more efficient ventilation for the home.

Estimated Project Value

Approximately $1 million.

Structural Modifications

Comments Off on Structural Modifications

Project Information

We are often called in to assess residential structural issues. For example, after a local homeowner’s request for modifications to a closet space resulted in the removal of a load-bearing wall and inadequate redistribution of load, Coastal River was consulted to assess the situation and recommend a remedy. We discovered that the roof structure was bearing on the ceiling, and recommended a remedial beam design to distribute loads to existing bearing walls to prevent further damage.

Estimated Project Value

$200,000
