COMPANY.

Over the years, AUE has worked with many clients to accommodate design to meet historic building regulations.

In Manhattan’s Meatpacking District AUE had the opportunity to be part of keeping the history of a 1909 building to adapt to current retail use. Engineering services included design, permit, and construction administration.

FEATURE PROJECT.

Carlo Pazolini opened their first US store in a 1909 3-story building in the historic New York Meatpacking district.   The district is known for store/loft and warehouse buildings.  Carlo Pazolini no longer occupies the space but the updated design  keeps history for the future.  Originally the canopies were used to hang meat, reflective of the neighborhood name. While this practice isn’t used today, the canopy was saved to keep with the area’s fabric.

The original façade included brick, marble, and a metal canopy to replace the highly damaged and rusted existing structure.  Alteration designs added a new sash, aluminum, and glass show window.    The Historic Preservation Board required adherence to the original design and use.  AUE accommodated this by recreating the look of the original laced beams and joists, which are no longer used in modern design.  Due to the extensive span of the canopy, the tie back structure was anchored through the unreinforced masonry facade into the wood floor diaphragm inside.
