Structural Evaluation

St. John's Cathedral

Statement

Before architectural restoration work can begin, a thorough analysis of a building's structural condition is often necessary.  The HPI works with the engineering department at UWM and private contractors and cost estimators to determine the extent of physical deterioration.  Testing laboratories and surveillance equipment at UWM provide the basis for determining the nature of detail and components of construction that are not readily visible.  That information is crucial in organization of a budget or restoration plan that considers all aspects of a building restoration needs.
