  2. Brick and Mortar Shift

    In the past few years, we’ve seen a resurgence of both commercial and retail development throughout the U.S., including the fast-growing areas of Central, Eastern, and Western Pennsylvania.

In bridge design, a spandrel is the space between the outer curve of an arch and the wall or ceiling of the…
