Project Description

This school building was constructed in 1964. The school had been experiencing serious water infiltration problems, apparently due to failure fo the masonry facade and roof, as well as site drainage issues. Scheduled work included re-pointing, replacement of face brick, parapet reconstruction, repairs to terracotta panels, sidewalk paving, and site grading. At the start of the project, a detailed Scope Report is created to detail the existing conditions and proposed solutions. The building envelope is  investigated by the use of masonry probes and water infiltration testing. A site survey was completed to address sidewalk and pavement issues. The Scope Report is used to generate Construction Documents, including specifications.
