“We were pleased to be involved in the building’s transformation. It is important to us that we could showcase our professional and technical expertise in the renovation and in the office spaces in which we are now working.” Jeff Klaiman, PE, Structural Engineering Principal at ADTEK
FREDERICK, Md. (PRWEB) November 05, 2018
ADTEK Engineers, Inc. (ADTEK), founded in 1987, which specializes in offering broad-spectrum civil engineering, structural base building design, and specialty engineering services, has moved to its new offices at 150 South East Street, Suite 201 in the Carroll Creek Linear Park area in the City of Frederick, Maryland. The firm had occupied a smaller office on Monocacy Blvd. since October 2004.
Located in the former Monocacy Valley Cannery built in 1904, ADTEK’s new 6,050-sf space is on two levels in the building. The firm provided specialty, cold-formed steel design for the two additions on the building’s sides and for elements of the renovation. ADTEK’s structural engineers also designed the structural steel plate floor reinforcement to support the spiral staircase that the firm wanted in its suite of offices. Jeff Klaiman, PE, Structural Engineering Principal, said: “We were pleased to be involved in the building’s transformation. It is important to us that we could showcase our professional and technical expertise in the renovation and in the office spaces in which we are now working.”
The Cannery project is a model of adaptive reuse as a professional services building featuring original architectural elements and natural sunlight. According to Bert Anderson, owner and developer, “The custom office build-out for ADTEK retains exposed brick walls and original heavy timber post and beam structural elements in a historic 19th century industrial building. Of interest in the ADTEK suite are the original heavy timber king post roof trusses in the area to be used by the firm's structural and civil engineering departments.”
The City of Frederick has been home to ADTEK Engineers for over 14 years. The firm looks forward to continuing its success as a vibrant local business and will continue to be a strong community patron. ADTEK is proud to maintain its presence at the “Gateway of Frederick.”
