Frost was enlisted by Netrality for structural engineering services at the company’s Kansas City, Missouri data center location. 1102 Grand has 26 stories with over 157,000 square feet of space. Known as the Bryant Building, the structure was initially designed as an office building in 1931 by the Chicago firm of Graham, Anderson, Probst & White. The building won the Kansas City Business League and the American Institute of Architects Chapter Awards in 1931. It is a distinctive example of Art Deco architecture in Kansas City and is listed on the National Historic Registry. The infrastructure is a steel frame with a concrete foundation. It sits on a three-story granite base and is erected using brick piers with recessed brown terra cotta spandrels between the piers, and decorative stylized reeds, with floral and geometric ornamentation.

Frost’s scope included structural capacity assessment and analysis as part of the process of retrofitting the iconic building. The Frost engineering team assessed existing slab conditions for moving loads, developed and implemented repairs of the fire escape, basement and sub-basement. Frost also performed structural analysis and design work in support of the condenser water loop installation and crane installation.
