PSU’s recently renovated CBEI building at the Philadelphia Navy Yard required reinforcement of the glu-lam arches that spanned the original gymnasium space.   CVM’s diagnostic evaluation was supplemented by wood pathology to establish the extent of moisture-induced decay.  Our repair solution combined steel plate reinforcing and wood epoxy. This solution minimized costs and worked within the constraints of the logistics of the occupied space.
