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 restoration work.

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.
