MARTOS is currently providing structural engineering services for Rising Ground, preivously known as Leake & Watts, a leading nonprofit social service organization. Our scope of work includes the replacement of roofing and repair of exterior masonry of the Main Building at the Rising Ground Yonkers Campus. MARTOS will use existing as-built plans of the building layout to conduct surveys of the structure. From our surveys, we will be preparing new building elevations which will indicate areas requiring repairs, type of repairs, and quantities. Once repair and roof replacement designs are complete, we will be overseeing the construction bidding process.
Founded as an orphanage in 1831, Rising Ground has been at the forefront of evolving community needs. They are leaders in utilizing result-driven, evidence-based practices. Today, their work is a positive force in the lives of more than 12,000 individuals annually, a mission MARTOS is honored to be associated with.
