The Shippey House, Fort Lauderdale
This historical home originally built in 1914, was for Broward County’s second “official” judge. This two-story, wood (Dade Pine-presently an extinct tree) structure took almost five years to restore completely. MUE was tasked with providing all structural engineering design services for the complete restoration of the home; including foundation plans, support beams, roof framing, window supports and overall structural integrity. In addition, the house needed to be relocated from its original site to the historical district of downtown Fort Lauderdale and MUE oversaw the coordination of the relocation and to adequately prepare the new site.
