AS Engineering Services firm of Port Jefferson, Long Island, NY provided structural engineering design services for the renovation of a private residence on the North Shore of Long Island in Suffolk County, NY. The project removing to interior walls to create a large open floor plan between the kitchen and great room.
One of the two walls to be removed supported both the second floor as well as the roof load so the new beams and supporting structure had to carry these loads down to ground. AS Engineering Services accomplished this by supporting the new structural beam with a second laminated veneer lumber (LVL) beam.
The structural engineering services provided allowed the finished project to have large open spans without any supporting columns to break up the open floor plan for the Long Island homeowners.
