Byrd Federal Building

Dedicated on May 28, 1998, the Robert C. Byrd United States Courthouse in Charleston, WV, is a District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.

A walk-net work platform system was implemented and rigged to the cornice steel structure of the courthouse. This walk-net platform was used to remove the aluminum decorative panels and repaint the structural steel members.

Plan B Engineering’s analysis and design focused on the anchors of the net system and calculations for structural building component capacity.
