Tyler Arboretum, Bank Barn Renovation

Built in 1833, this historic bank barn was renovated to serve as an event and education space. The barn’s age and type of structure had produced structural deficiencies, which CVM addressed by shoring and repairing timber columns and beams as well as reinforcing other timber elements. In accordance with the programmatic changes, the existing structure was also laterally stiffened with a new full floor diaphragm and a partial mezzanine diaphragm.
