Thorough review of existing conditions and restoration techniques
Intensive effort to retain and restore existing stone with a diligent search for matching limestone replacements
Subgrade waterproofing through deconstruction
Green Roof replacement with rebuilt stone parapets and accommodations for future solar array
Comprehensive project with full time, on-site construction observation and contract administration
The result of this project displays a fully restored, limestone exterior façade for the next 60 years. Behind the scenes of this project provides an exterior envelope that no longer leaks into the interior, through carefully deconstructed stoops, baluster and site elements, sub-grade excavations, and improved waterproofing. Special techniques and full-time, construction integration safe-guarded and preserved much of the stone for its repair and reinstallation on the building. The team also integrated a green roof system as part of the replacement to limit extraneous storm water on the site.
