City West Building Exterior Restoration
The City West development consists of both a south development defined as Lincoln Court and a north development as Laurel Homes. The majority of buildings are comprised of 2-3 story apartment buildings and town homes with exterior finishes of masonry veneer, vinyl siding, fiber-cement panel siding and EIFS. At the time of project commencement, the buildings were 16 years of age with failing exterior envelope issues.
Elevar developed a comprehensive, yet practical plan to make emergency repairs to the facades of several buildings. The scope of our work included providing budgetary cost estimates based on initial observations and overall scale, performing field investigation of the masonry, EIFS and cement board wall assemblies, and developing a scope of repairs that factored construction cost budgets and priorities in order to develop pragmatic solutions that were viable given the age, condition, use and occupancy of the buildings.
