Henry P., the Recording Secretary of the PNA Lodge #2093 in New Britain, CT contacted our former research and development company, Simply Additions LLC, because the existing front entry of their Lodge building began separating from the main building.
Obviously this is something that had to be handled with care and fixed promptly, so Polish National Alliance lodge members would not be disrupted from visiting their associates for an extended amount of time.
Henry was in need of a reliable contractor to demolish the existing structure and build a new front entry addition as soon as possible, because re-opening the lodge to its members was important.
Before Demolition -The Commercial Front Entry Addition Story
From this angle you could not tell that the front entry was slowly bending away from the rest of the building. Notice the double entry steel doors in the photo above, we had to remove and reuse them once the new front entry addition was built by our former research and development company Simply Additions LLC..
A Closer Look at the Separation Gap
The original concrete footer supporting the front entry gave in, allowing the front entry to slowly creep forward and become unattached from the main building. It's possible that the original front entry addition was built on unstable soil, or that the concrete footer was poured from a weaker mix. Any number of factors could have weakened the original concrete footer which in the end detached the front entry from the main building.
Our Excavator Crumbled the Existing Entry
We called in our top concrete guy in Connecticut to do the demolished of the existing front entry. De constructing a masonry structure is simple if you have the right tools (toys) to do it.
New Concrete Footer
This new beefy concrete footer will easily support the weight of the front entry addition to be built, that we designed and planned for the PNA lodge in New Britain CT.
