[Sota's] attention to detail, quality of craftsmanship, and responsiveness to clients' needs are indicative of your commitment to providing the highest level of service to your clients.

FortyEighty Architecture

WYEP is a non-profit radio station that chose Sota Construction Services early in the design process. This was done to ensure that this fast track project would be built as green as possible and to meet the tight schedule and budget. The challenges of the site required deconstruction of existing buildings, 75' deep piles, and close coordination on this dense urban site. Sota worked with dggp Architects (now FortyEighty Architecture) and Steven Winter Associates to evolve a thermal envelope that was highly efficient yet met the budget.

This women's shelter provides space for ten families, plus working space for the administration staff. The scope of work included removal of most of the original building while preserving the facade, construction of a new building behind the preserved facade, and a new construction addition to the left side of the building.

Because this building is considered to be among Pittsburgh's most historically significant, the selective demolition, foundation underpinning, and general construction were sequenced with care, in order to preserve the original facade.

In completing this project, Sota Construction Services renovated a 45,000 s.f. former ice manufacturing facility into a dynamic series of artist studios. Substantial selective demolition was required, along with structural steel work. Monumental-sized period-style aluminum windows of appropriate proportion were also installed. All work was completed within strict adherence to standards set by the United States Secretary of the Interior regarding the renovation of buildings of historical significance.
