Abstract

This report focuses on the structural and fire protection analysis of the building located at 68 Prescott Street in Worcester, Massachusetts. This report includes information collected on the renovation of a brownfield site and the masonry building, as part of the Gateway Park Project. Strategies to rehabilitate and reuse the existing masonry exterior were implemented utilizing steel and reinforced concrete structural alternatives with corresponding cost estimates. Additionally, a code analysis was performed. The document concludes with an analysis of the active and passive fire protection systems and a risk assessment of the building.
