GMS provided structural engineering services for the conversion of the former industrial warehouse to the new 20,000 sf studio for the sculptor and his team. GMS engineered extensive modifications to the existing structure to accommodate new office spaces, the addition of an elevator shaft, and new egress stairs. Most significantly, the project includes a new two-story 6,000 sf stone fabrication hall, various art workshops, two planted green roofs, and a new courtyard to store art. Two 20-ton bridge cranes allow stone blocks to be maneuvered through the studio.
