The building was first staged with full-height pipe staging, and netted for life safety measures and to protect the surrounding area. Many of the precast concrete elements around the tower had begun to fall and in some cases fallen to the ground.
After extensive leak investigation and masonry repairs, which included 100% cutting and repointing of the original brick masonry on the lower section of the tower, the building was ready to be put back together.
Deteriorated decorative precast elements and flashing were removed and lowered to the ground elevation.
This included the fabrication and installation of copper through wall flashings below the precast bands and at the relieving angles.
The Alpha Weatherproofing team also completed multiple repairs to the ornamental stone work using specialized products to replicate the original surfaces.
Replacement of sealant joints around windows, control joints, and dissimilar materials completed the waterproofing aspect of this project.
The project was completed with repairs to the slate roof on the tower roof.
