4 SCOPE Pursuant to your request, we performed a visual site visit review and a cursory design analysis on the Old Boynton Beach High School located on Ocean Avenue, Boynton Beach, Florida. The purpose of the investigation was to perform a Structural Condition Assessment of the two-story building and to provide a schematic narrative out-lining the general structural improvements (exterior walls, roof / floor framing systems, foundations, etc. to resist gravity / wind loads) required for the current Florida Building Code. The inspection methods used to formulate our conclusions were based on a visual review of the exterior / interior of the building. In addition, a cursory design analysis was performed to determine what general repairs / modifications will be required to bring the overall structure up to current code (The Florida Building Code, 2007 Edition) for gravity / wind loads. This cursory design analysis will provide us with additional information to make a determination as to the feasibility of upgrading the existing building structure. The cursory design analysis used to formulate our conclusions was based on a plan review of the original building drawings, dated July 15, 1927 and information provided by REG Architects, Inc. Various areas of the exterior / interior were available to expose the framing of the roof / floor structure. No destructive testing of materials / components was undertaken. Our evaluation is based only on visual examination of the areas, which were opened on the date of our visits. 1

5 PROJECT DESCRIPTION The building consists of a two-story terracotta / wood frame structure of approximately 28,500 square feet designed as a high school in a Mediterranean revival style. The facility was originally constructed in the late 1920 s. The exterior envelope of the building consists of painted textured stucco cladding, cast stone trim, arches, aluminum / glass windows and two main entries on the South (front) elevation. The roof is clad with a built-up roofing membrane system with sections of barrel tile roofing in the mansard areas. The structural roof framing system in the classroom wing consists of stick built wood trusses, wood rafters, wood plank sheathing and a built-up membrane roof cladding system. In the auditorium / gymnasium wing the structural roof framing system consists of structural steel riveted bow trusses, heavy timber purlins with wood plank sheathing. Steel I beams, wood rafters and wood plank decking are present over the stage area of the auditorium / gymnasium. The classroom wing second floor structural framing system consists of wood floor beams, diagonal wood plank sheathing and finished tongue and groove hard wood flooring. The structural floor system in the auditorium / gymnasium wing consists of concrete slab / joist system supported on concrete beams and columns. The ground floor consists of a 4 reinforced concrete slab-on-grade with some sections framed with wood floor beams, diagonal wood plank sheathing supported on reinforced concrete foundation walls. The foundation system of the building consists of reinforced concrete walls, continuous and isolated spread footings. The building is equipped with sanitary sewer, storm water drainage, domestic water, electrical and phone services. Parking is provided on the West and North elevations of the building. 2

6 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The Old Boynton Beach High School building is in fair structural condition, albeit, having areas of noted deterioration / damage requiring repair and / or replacement. The building envelope walls, consisting of painted light-textured stucco cladding on hollow terracotta tile masonry, aluminum / single-glazed glass windows, were observed to be in fair condition with no structural deficiencies apparent. The painted stucco cladding was also noted to be flaking. The roof cladding (consisting of a built-up membrane system and a clay tile barrel roof system in the mansard areas) was not observed during our site visit. We recommend that a roofing specialist be consulted to review in detail the condition of the roof claddings. The structural roof framing system in the classroom wing of the building, consisting of stick built wood trusses, wood roof rafters, wood plank sheathing, supported on the terracotta tile masonry / wood-framed stud bearing walls, was observed to be in good condition with some isolated areas of damage / deterioration from severe, long-term water / moisture intrusion and exposure. These isolated areas of damage / deterioration will require repair, removal and / or replacement. In the auditorium / gymnasium wing of the building, the roof framing system, consisting of structural steel riveted bow trusses, heavy timber purlins and wood plank sheathing, was noted to be in good condition with no apparent structural defects observed. Steel I beams, wood rafters and wood plank decking over the stage area of the auditorium / gymnasium require further investigation due to being inaccessible. The classroom wing, second floor framing system, consisting of wood floor beams, diagonal wood plank floor deck and finished tongue and groove hardwood flooring, was observed to be in good condition with no structural defects apparent, albeit, in the isolated observed areas of long-term water / moisture damage / deterioration / rot. These isolated areas of structural damage / deterioration will require removal, repair and / or replacement. The ground floor structural framing system in the auditorium / gymnasium wing, consisting of a reinforced concrete slab / joist system was observed to be in good condition with no structural defects apparent. The framed portion of the ground floor in the classroom wing, consisting of wood floor joists, diagonal wood plank floor sheathing, was observed to be in good condition where 3

7 accessible. Further investigation of the framed portions of the ground floor is recommended, which was not accessible during the site visits. If the building is to be used for future occupancy, structural repairs will be required as follows: Damage to the exterior terracotta wall. Open joints / cracks in the exterior cast stone trim band. Water damage to the classroom wing wood roof framing. Water damage to the wood 2 nd floor framing. Water damage / cracks to the interior plaster / wood lath on the exterior / interior terracotta / wood-framed walls. The cursory design investigation revealed that the building structure will require repairs / replacements and modifications for upgrading the structure to the current building code (2007 Edition). These upgrades are as follows: Reinforcement to the exterior terracotta wall panels. Reinforcement to all door and window openings (jamb / sills). Connections between the bearing ends of all wood joist / truss and terracotta walls on the roof / floor levels. Additional fasteners to the roof wood planks. In addition, the building will also require architectural and M.E.P. repairs / improvements per the requirements of this current code. All windows / doors / louvers, etc. will also require replacement to comply with the current code. 4

12 FEASIBILITY STUDY A. Codes and Standards Florida Building Code, 2007 Edition with 2009 Supplements Design wind speed is 140 mph, exposure C, Importance Factor is 1.15 Existing Reinforcing Steel Fy = 18 ksi Structural Steel Fy = 24 ksi B. Design Loads Wind loads per ASCE 7-05 Roof live loads 20 PSF Floor live loads 50 PSF classrooms, 100 PSF corridors, 80 PSF auditorium / gymnasium. C. Foundation System 1. The original drawings indicate that the foundation system consists of isolated and continuous spread footings. 2. The existing footings were not accessible in the field of our review. The original drawings do indicate footing sizes and rebar. The isolated spread footings for the interior columns with rebar are shown in footing schedule. 3. No information on the allowable soil bearing pressure was indicated on the contract drawings available for our review. For our preliminary analysis, we are using 3,000 PSF as a safe soil bearing pressure. Our design analysis indicated that the existing isolated spread footing is structurally adequate to support the required gravity loads. 4. The existing continuous footings at the interior demising walls and exterior building perimeter walls are specified on the original drawings. The perimeter walls and some interior walls will be utilized as shearwalls (to resist hurricane wind loads per the current code). 5. These footings are sufficient to resist the gravity / hurricane wind loads per the current code. D. Wall Framing System 1. Exterior: a.
