The Brooklyn Hospital Parking Deck required a thorough visual condition assessment and testing to determine water related deterioration and failed waterproofing due to lack of regular maintenance. As a result of this effort, O&S Associates developed comprehensive drawings and specifications for repair. Repair items included:

* Water absorption and age related deterioration had caused delamination of the waffle slabs.

* Spalling of concrete presented a life-safety issue due to loose concrete hazards.

* Delamination of the floor slab soffits had occurred due to water and mineral absorption.

* Waterproofing membranes were past their lifespan in all locations.

* Replacement of all MEP systems.

* A comprehensive structural repairs and cost-effective waterproofing repair program was required to repair the deteriorated conditions and extend the service life of the garage.

* Investigation of rooftop surface tennis courts converted to parking.
