UNC Charlotte Atkins Library

Charlotte, North Carolina


SKA was the engineer-of-record for the brick masonry veneer cladding and window leakage investigation of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte’s J. Murrey Atkins Library. This library, located at the heart of the UNCC campus, includes a ten-story tower, which houses over one million volumes.

SKA provided engineering investigative services, which included a document review, finite element analysis of the cladding, and field water spray testing to determine the root cause of the cladding distress and water leakage. Remedial design alternatives were provided in the report. The investigation and remediation was completed while the library and offices remained open and uninterrupted.
