Last month, the Charlottesville office was busy working on Keswick Hunt Clubhouse. Learn more about the project below and check out recent drone footage of the construction.
Keswick Hunt Clubhouse
The Keswick Hunt Clubhouse was built in 1898 to house the newly founded Keswick Hunt Club. The current owners would like to add insulation to the roof to allow the space to be used as a venue for different gatherings. We were tasked with designing a new roof structure that would preserve the look from the inside of the existing exposed rafters. We designed a series of steel tube frames that sit on the outside of the existing roof. Through bolts penetrate the roof in select places to allow the existing roof to be lifted back into its original place and reinforced by our new steel frames. New rafters will be framed into the steel tubes and a new roof will be built on top of that. This gives the building the exact same appearance inside and out, all while properly reinforcing the existing roof in place and creating a new roof that is built in accordance with present code.
The renovation is currently under construction. Recently, the steel tube columns were erected and welded into place. The steel tubes on the roof are currently being erected.
