In the spring and summer of 2021 CopelandBEC was called in to investigate deterioration of concrete masonry walls, an adjacent concrete sidewalk, and an area below a parking garage ramp at 10 Vernon Street in Brookline, Massachusetts.
Our investigations revealed a lack of effective water management the CMU walls, concrete sidewalk, and concrete ramp. These issues contributed to deterioration of the concrete and steel structure, as well as water leakage into the garage below.
CopelandBEC designed repairs such as replacement of the sidewalk and CMU wall, steel framing repairs, concrete repairs at the ramp, and application of appropriate waterproofing and flashing at repaired areas.
We collaborated with Statewide RM on this project. Statewide provided contractor assistance for exploratory openings as well as construction cost estimates.
