Building owners commissioned FacadeMDto conduct a survey of specific problem areas of exterior walls, from the ground and from swing scaffolding, and to perform identification and analysis of all deteriorated conditions, leading to the preparation of construction documents for necessary restoration work. Despite a limited budget and schedule, FacadeMDwas able to design a simple and effective repair program to address serious conditions found and to assist the contractor in implementing the approved design. FacadeMDprofessionals assisted in the bidding and filing processes, and performed periodic visits to the site during construction.

The FacadeMDteam coordinated stabilization pinning and the resetting of displaced original limestone ornament, in the replacement of cracked and displaced original face brick, and in the repair and waterproofing of corroded original structural steel.
