Members 1st Federal Credit Union – Carlisle
Exterior Repairs - Carlisle, PA
An individual driving a u-haul attempted to drive around the end of a canopy at the Walnut Bottom Members 1st Federal Credit Union in Carlisle. Unfortunately, the driver miss judged their vehicle’s height, distance, and speed, resulting in the end of the canopy being moved several inches. After the incident, a structural engineer discovered that the impact broke the weld at the top of the steel column, bent the steel I-beam, cracked the brick around the two outer columns and broke the concrete where the columns anchored to the island. The necessary repairs required structural shoring from Brand Safeway. The brick around the columns was then demolished, including the two end columns and concrete island. Then new columns, island concrete, and brick was installed.
To prevent any future incidents, Members 1st asked eciService to disassemble half of the canopy-roof since it is not needed for their ATM lane anymore. This requires the steel I-beams, roof section, and move gable end to meet in a new location, which will shorten the canopy by approximately 6 feet.
All of the repairs and finish work on this project was done by eciService. Mark Shoemaker from eciConstruction assisted with the concrete replacement. The masonry brick around the steel columns was done by a sub-contractor.
