Brookline Condo Masonry Restoration at 15-17 James Street
Last year CopelandBEC wrapped up a multi-year masonry facade restoration project at 15-17 James Street in Brookline, MA. Statewide RM, the contractor on the project, recently posted a great write-up on their website and it’s so good we wanted to share it!
It was a challenging project for many reasons. From Statewide’s article:
The portico at 15-17 James Street, Brookline, had become a safety concern. Replacing it with a similar portico would have been expensive and difficult to accomplish, but it was too worn down to be repaired. Work was completed in tight quarters, primarily during the cold winter months.-Statewide RM

CopelandBEC has been providing building envelope design consulting during the design assist process over the past year, and is currently providing construction phase quality assurance services including regular site visits to observe the ongoing work.Read more
