Exterior wall condition assessment

Originally constructed in the late 1970s, Clarksville Middle School is a single-story, brick-clad structure with load-bearing, exterior masonry cavity walls supporting open-web steel roof joists. After completing a comprehensive interior renovation in 2006, the school district became concerned about apparent brick masonry deterioration and SGH conducted a condition assessment of the exterior walls to determine the cause and effects of the masonry deterioration.
