Façade Restoration

Façade Inspections discovered numerous imminent conditions leading to the design and implementation of extensive four (4) year concrete/masonry restoration project to the exterior facades of the building. Considerable engineering was required to repair the building expansion joints as part of the repairs as previous repairs bridged the joints causing severe damage to concrete spandrel beams. Building listed as a historic Landmark.
