Over 4,000 separate poor quality windows and spandrel panels were originally constructed without correct flashings, vapor barriers, and trim work for all 14 buildings of a suburban development. This allowed the intrusion of water, air-traffic noise, and lost valuable conditioned interior air, wasting energy. A prior 10-year-long $1,000,000 maintenance program failed to solve the problem.
H|A|G examined the window systems and their installation to determine the most correct method for replacement. Designs for multi-phased replacement were prepared, competitively bid and permitted. The contractor’s two-year replacement operations were routinely monitored to meet the highest industry standards of quality and to record the work for the owner’s records.
