Beach Hall, originally constructed in 1929, is a transitional masonry building with mass masonry walls and an embedded structural frame.  The building features a slate mansard roof, low-slope membrane and copper roofs, and a brick masonry facade with decorative stone trim and accents.  SGH completed a hands-on investigation of the masonry facade and roofs to determine the causes for masonry deterioration and apparent leakage into the building.
