Pike Park Historic Pavilion Restoration
The Pike Park project consisted of development of civil and architectural plans for the repair and rehabilitation of a historic pavilion structure located in the "Little Mexico" neighborhood on Harry Hines Boulevard in Dallas, Texas. Metropolitan Infrastructure was responsible for all engineering design elements and for supervision and quality control, including the architectural design elements of the pavilion structure.
The scope of MI's involvement included research of the original structure and a detailed evaluation of the condition of the existing structure. Our architects and engineers then prepared plans and details to renovate the existing pavilion, repair the broken or missing parts of the railing, and reconstruct the stairs to comply with current standards. We also created plans and details to refinish the roof, repair the wooden arches, which had rotted or deteriorated structurally, provide new lighting and electrical connections for the pavilion. Metropolitan Infrastructure's scope also included the paving the plaza using pavestones and the reconstruction of the wrought iron arch entry gates. MI was involved with not only the pavilion design but also assistance during the construction phase.
This project was well-received by the adjacent neighborhood and provides an excellent example of our firm's ability to combine architectural design talents with functional engineering solutions in culturally sensitive public park settings.
