Duval County, Florida
The Dredge Depot Storage Warehouse, located at 3077 Talleyrand Avenue, Jacksonville, FL, underwent renovations to comply with current building codes. A reliable water source from Talleyrand Avenue through the public utility was provided for the fire protection and domestic water systems. The existing electrical distribution and lighting system, as well as the fire protection system, were replaced with a code-compliant system. To ensure compliance, supplemental framing was added to the existing structure during the renovation process. Additionally, the severely deteriorated building metal wall panels, roof deck, windows, and doors were replaced. It’s important to note that the renovation work was conducted in halves of the warehouse at a time. Lastly, due to the nature of the building, lead-based paint was expected on the steel frame, wall girders, roof purlins, open storage shed, and loading dock steel.
