The Engineering Sciences Building is an 11-story academic structure that houses classrooms, offices, and research space. The brick veneer façade experienced distress and was displaced at numerous locations around the building.
WDP was retained to perform an investigation of the problems reported in the facility and provide repair/replacement recommendations. The primary focus of the evaluation was to determine the cause of the problems and the immediate repairs needed to stabilize the façade, while also determining potential options to replace the entire façade. The work generally consisted of:
Development of a full condition assessment report along with repair recommendations and detailed cost estimates for each priority of repair.
