O’Donnell & Naccarato provided structural engineering services for the rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of the 44,000 SF Philadelphia Navy Yard “Building 26”, converting the historic manufacturing facility into class “A” office space. Rehabilitation of the 90 year-old structure included the exterior restoration of the roofing, brick facade, wood windows and metal cornices. The interior space was carefully updated to restore the building’s historic industrial characteristics such as the original 20-ton overhead crane and exposed steel structural framing and truss system. Building 26 is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
