TRANSFORMATION FOR RECREATION
CKM Construction has built a team that specializes in transforming
dark, dank, structurally deficent spaces into structurally sound,
dry and highly functional showpieces.
A project such as this defines value, transforming the liability of an
unused, maintenance headache into an attractive, valuable asset.
INNOVATION FOR PRESERVATION
When structural engineer, Moshe Calamaro approached
CKM Construction to inspect a Lincoln Park condominium
building with serious structural problems, CKM worked with
the engineer to implement an innovative set of solutions.
This required extensive shoring of the structure and removal
of the dangerously dilapidated, main triple beam.
Concrete footings were poured and new steel columns and
beams were installed. This new bearing support line was
extended up through the four-story building with the
installation of additional steel, microlams and parallams thus
preserving the historic 130 year old structure.
