The Coral Casino Beach and Cabana Club is a designated historic landmark, designed in 1937 by architect Gardner A. Dailey as a two-story, wood-framed structure. Holmes Structures’ efforts utilized the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. The facilities were required to remain operational during the design process. We were flexible partners throughout, adapting to salvage and preserve existing structural framing and finishes in smooth collaboration with the architectural team.

Holmes Fire developed alternative methods to protect the historic landmark. Performance-based strategies were adopted to achieve adequate fire protection to structural steel installed within the historic mural-covered walls, where space and preservation constraints prevented conventional fire protection methods from being implemented.
