Stop & Shop Supermarket
Lexington, MA
This project was a complex rehab of an existing mini Stop & Shop into a Stop & Shop superstore. Forced to meet strict zoning criteria along with keeping the facility in operation during the work created numerous structural obstacles. Numerous shear walls and bearing walls had to be removed and replaced with steel moment frames. Chapter 34 of the Massachusetts State Code dictated the degree of strengthening required for this 50-year array of additions and renovations.
