The Preservation Alliance of West Virginia (PAWV) is accepting proposals from qualified structural engineers to evaluate the historic Logan House located in the Beverly National Historic District at 831 Main St, Beverly, WV 26253, and provide an appropriate plan for rehabilitation. The Logan House suffered from a fire approximately 20 years ago and has been mothballed since.
This project is funded in part by the Preservation Alliance of West Virginia’s Saving Historic Places Grant in partnership with the Paul Bruhn Rural Revitalization Grant provided through the National Park Service, Department of the Interior. As such, the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties must be followed.
The structural engineer shall demonstrate historic expertise and identify three successful historic projects completed within the past five years.
Scope of Services:
Constructed ca. 1860, the two-story building has plaster and lath covering the walls and ceiling. The fire seemed localized to the upstairs roofing area. While a newer roof has been installed on this building, it is showing signs of age and some water infiltration is damaging the building. The structural engineer is tasked with evaluating the structural stability of the existing framing, suggesting repairs or replacement to structural members.
