Thornton Tomasetti’s role at One James River Plaza

By Leila Steed13 January 2021

See footage from the May 2020 implosion of One James River Plaza in Richmond, Virginia, alongside Thornton Tomasetti’s computer simulation predicting the progression of the collapse. The controlled demolition of the 21-storey urban office tower was validated by high-fidelity engineering analyses.

Thornton Tomasetti’s structural engineers also developed plans for the mechanical demolition of the below-grade parking garage and determined the structural stability of the building prior to the implosion, while its geo-structural experts focused on the installation of a new earth retention system to maintain the stability of the surrounding area.
