Building Envelope Upgrades
The failing elements of the siding system were removed, allowing repairs to be made to the building structure. Insulation, a weather-resistant barrier, and a rain-screen were added to protect the building from wind and rain. Extruded aluminum planks and prefinished metal flashings replaced the deteriorating wood siding and trim.
Investigation of over 360,000 Sf Ft of roof area, covering 11 buildings. Design priorities established based on roof condition assessment and limited funding available for roof repairs. Design included removing and rebuilding 48,000 Sq Ft of EPDM roof systems (membrance, insulation, substrate boards and vapor barrier).
Three phase project: 1) removal of existing built-up roof systems and installation of a new single-ply membrane roof with insulation, including skylight replacement; 2) masonry was cleaned, and the mortar was re-pointed and sealed; 3) 75 windows (6 different style configurations) were replaced to match the historic previously existing windows.
Design included adding sub-purlins, rigid insulation, and new standing steam metal roof panels. The existing downspouts and gutter systems were modified. New flashing systems were installed at roof penetrations, and new roof curbs were installed at roof-mounted equipment.
Design included 10,350 Sq Ft of Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS), providing a revitalization of the building exterior, while dramatically increasing energy efficiency. In the drill hall, 800 Sq Ft of thermally broken translucent wall panel systems were installed in the clerestory, dramatically increased daylight in the space, and delivering energy savings from reducing the need for artificial lighting.
Five cottages received new composite roofing systems. New gutters and downspouts were installed on one cottage, and new leaf-guard gutter debris protection systems were installed on four cottages.
