The FacadeMDTeam conducted a survey of sidewalk pavement and supporting
vault structure, as well as research of Transit Authority
records regarding the subway station mezzanine beneath portions
of this building. FacadeMDprovided coordination of extensive filing
and bidding processes, and coordination of all parties as the
owner¹s representative during construction. FacadeMDprofessionals
evaluated the vault structure and administered waterproofing and
pavement subgrade preparations for a new poured concrete sidewalk.
NYC Transit did not want to repair portions of the city-owned
deteriorated structure that was leaking into building basement.
FacadeMDdesigned a cost-effective stainless steel liner in the basement
to prevent water leakage from the city-owned vault and foundation
walls into the building, eliminating the necessity for extensive
owner-financed repairs to the city-owned structure.
