Building 4 Foundation Repair

 

The biggest structural problem with Northface Resort involved the foundation of Building 4.  The original foundation was structurally unsound.  Under the oversight of Frank Hogg, Northface Board President, Building 4 was jacked up, moved into the parking lot, and the foundation replaced during the months of September and October 1994.

The old slab foundation did not need to be demolished - it fell apart when the building was moved - note the total lack of steel rebar in the concrete
