Morabito Consultants is excited to announce our contribution of structural engineering services to the new Cardiovascular Center at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital, opening its doors to patients tomorrow! Collaborating with CRGA Design, Kibart, and Carroll Engineering, we successfully transformed the former “Counseling Building” into a cutting-edge outpatient center dedicated to meeting the needs of cardiovascular patients.

This exciting development was featured in a recent article in the Baltimore Sun, dated Tuesday, March 05, 2024.

The City of Miami recently released an update to the policy on the Structural Peer Review of all Buildings.  Effective immediately, a Structural Peer Review is now mandatory for all buildings 50 feet or more in height or 4 stories or more.  Previously, the requirement was for buildings 60 feet or higher.

Demolition is ongoing throughout the pool shell walls and floor at the Dundalk Y Swim Club.  At this time, the setting bed has been removed and proposed repairs are being identified.  MC is proud to be partnering with Lothorian Pools in reviewing and the proposed repairs and providing the necessary details to be implemented for the restoration of the swimming pool.  Repairs are expected to be completed in Fall 2024.

MC would like to take a moment to reflect on the incredible journey of Jeff Kennelly and express our deepest gratitude for his 10 years of dedicated service.

Jeff has been an invaluable asset to our company, consistently demonstrating professionalism, expertise, and a passion for excellence. He has played a pivotal role in major projects including the complete concrete remediation of the Dolphin Tower Condominium in Sarasota, FL (for which MC won 3 national awards of excellence); Little Patuxent Square; Helping Up Missions; major hospital building additions at Anne Arundel Medical Center, and Sinai Hospital of Baltimore; and numerous smaller challenging buildings that needed the expertise of an experienced and knowledgeable structural engineer. Jeff was also instrumental in MC being awarded design services for numerous projects including renovations to Tyson Corner Mall and Omni Hotel in Baltimore City. Jeff is leaving an indelible mark on our team at MC.

Beyond his impressive professional accomplishments, Jeff is known for his extensive knowledge of Ram Concepts and Revit, team leadership, and willingness and patience in mentoring MC’s young graduate engineers. He has been a source of inspiration to us all, and his positive impact will resonate long after his departure.

As Jeff embarks on this well-deserved journey of retirement, we extend our heartfelt gratitude for his unwavering commitment and wish him a future filled with joy, relaxation, and new adventures.

2023 marked 40 years for MC, and was filled with growth and celebrations for our company. In 2024, we look forward to continued company growth as we expand our Florida office, continue to offer and develop new contractor assistance services (ie. shop drawing preparation and CA support), while building new relationships with architects, contractors, and developers.

The original 1922 6-span simply supported steel deck truss bridge on Phoenix Road in Baltimore County, MD went through a rehabilitation process that was completed in 1982.  During the routine biennial bridge inspection in 2009, significant deterioration to the floor beams was found along the exterior of the bridge, resulting in the bridge capacity to be reduced to single-lane traffic controlled by traffic signals at both ends of the bridge.

The demolition of the existing bridge started in 2022 and required Morabito Consultants to analyze overweight construction machinery to prepare sequencing and procedures for a safe demolition. MC is proud to have worked with Gray and Son, Inc. in contributing to the replacement of this important bridge, allowing two-way traffic to resume connecting York and Papermill Road.

More information about this project can be found on the Baltimore City Department of Transportation website here.

In observance of Christmas, MC will be closing early today, December 22nd, at 12pm and will reopen with normal business hours on Tuesday, December 26th.

Thank you and have a safe, happy, and healthy Christmas weekend.
