241 Eagle Mountain Harbor Rd

A narrow plot of land overlooking Lake Champlain in Milton, VT demanded a vertical floor plan with a walk-out basement. PERCH designed a 16-foot-by-19-foot garage slab spanning over the basement, which included specifying a corrugated steel form deck and fitting a reinforcement mat into a 5-inch slab depth. PERCH verified rebar placement on-site before concrete was placed.

Capstone Morrisville

PERCH designed the foundation for a 12,000 square foot Headstart facility in Morrisville, VT. The general contractor was H.A. Manosh. Custom roof trusses placed all loadbearing walls on the exterior, permitting a slab on grade with several construction joints on the interior. PERCH ordered soil testing and determined that the fill on site is non-frost-susceptible, enabling a shallow foundation around the perimeter of the exterior wall. PERCH prepared structural plans as needed for permitting and construction.

169 Ferguson St

PERCH was structural designer for a rear addition to a single-family house in Burlington, VT. Working within the plans developed by Hinge Architects, PERCH designed floor joists and foundations for the new construction. PERCH also analyzed an existing concrete block foundation, performed an on-site soil test, and designed a retrofit to accommodate the weight of a second story.
