Preservation FAQ: Portico Shoring Posts

This image shows a shoring post in the basement below the portico. There are ten of these posts in the basement, two below each of five concrete beams that currently support the structure above. Recommended by engineer Craig Bennett following a structural assessment, these shoring posts have been used to lift the structure 1/10th of one millimeter in order to stabilize the portico until a permanent structural solution can be put in place.
