Institutional Exam
35,000 sq. ft. Facade Inspection & Critical Examination Report
Client: Catholic Theological Union

The aging historic facades of this Hyde Park institution were rapidly failing to prevent the natural elements from causing increasingly costly damage to the building.

H|A|G was enlisted to investigate and determine the amount and quality of damage to the building. Our services included:

  • An accurate close up, hands-on, 100% scaffold inspection of all building facades.
  • The determination of spot inspection openings, made to further verify and document suspect construction conditions.
  • The collection of an organized high-resolution digital image archive of the entire inspection for the owner’s records.
  • The creation of computerized “Facade Maps” for each building elevation, which charted the exact location and quality for each type of defect observed for the owner’s records.
  • Preparation of a comprehensive Critical Examination Report, per City of Chicago Building Department requirements.
