Hartz Mountain Associates (Co-Owner/Manager)
Newark, New Jersey
This local landmark structure, which houses state and local offices
and courts, had experienced long-standing problems with fragments
falling from the deteriorated facade, posing major issues for
the owners, which include the State of New Jersey.
FacadeMD, acting in conjunction with former parent company DeSimone
Consulting Engineers, was commissioned to conduct a survey of
exterior walls, from the ground, from roofs and swing scaffolding,
and to perform identification and analysis of deteriorated conditions,
leading to the preparation of construction documents for necessary
FacadeMD professionals coordinated bidding and filing processes, site
meetings with the contractors and owners and performed periodic
visits to the site during the construction phase.
The FacadeMDTeam administered patching and replacement of the original
limestone cladding and ornament, as well as the repair and waterproofing
of original steel spandrel panels, pointing of deteriorated mortar
joints and repair of corroded structural steel, performing within
budget, on schedule and in adherence with the security concerns
of the owners.
