Under a continuing contract with Volusia County, Bentley served as prime design consultant to provide structural design services for the safety upgrades inside the County Courthouse Clock Tower. The structural scope included replacement of access ladder to upper platform, reinforcing existing floor framing and providing handrails around all open edges while being cognizant of the construction constraints. Bentley also served as prime design consultant to the County to provide structural design services for repairs of the existing concrete columns that surround the courthouse annex. The concrete columns were clad in pre-cast concrete panels which were failing. Bentley worked closely with the County to design an appropriate repair.
