Repairs were necessary on this newer building to correct deficiencies in the original construction. The building façade was shifting and cracked in many locations and water was infiltrating to the interior residential units.
Balconies on the building made it more difficult to access the wall areas needing repair.
Cracked renaissance stone units were removed and rebuilt.
Cracked areas in the brick masonry were removed and rebuilt.
Concrete repairs were necessary at the balcony slabs.
The residential building boom of the late 1990s and early 2000s resulted in a new set of building maintenance issues and problems. New cast concrete materials to replicate stone proved to be far less resistant to water infiltration. Poor detailing and construction practices led to new condominium owners faced with expensive repair solutions.
Central Building & Preservation L.P. was engaged by building management of the 910 W. Madison building to address an array of water infiltration problems less than ten years following the construction of the building. Working with the building's consultants, Central successfully alleviated the water infiltration.
