Wood Hall at the University of Connecticut (UConn), constructed in 1938, is a load-bearing brick masonry building with a gable roof and slate roofing.  The masonry facade features decorative stone trim and accents.  SGH completed a hands-on investigation of the masonry facade to determine causes for masonry deterioration and apparent leakage into the building.  We designed comprehensive repairs to the facade including rebuilding the gable end walls as veneer walls with a back-up waterproofing system.
