The Briarcliff Apartment Building required a comprehensive building assessment of the exterior façade.

• O&S performed a thorough investigation which revealed extensive failure of existing sealants, resulting in water infiltration problems and corrosion of structural steel connection assemblies, which support the exterior precast concrete panels.

• The exterior balconies and terraces are exhibiting signs of concrete spalling and leakage resulting in water damage that need repaired and waterproofed.

• The enclosed parking garage has extensive areas of corrosion related structural deterioration, which results in the need of structural repairs and a concise waterproofing program to assure safety and long term durability.

• The building’s exterior elevated parking deck and tennis court show signs of leakage and deterioration and requires repairs and resurfacing.
