Cladding before repair

The granite-clad Medical Center building, built in the 1970s, is nine stories tall.  The building houses the university teaching hospital, the medical school, and clinical research laboratories.  SGH led an investigation of the stone cladding when the owner observed bowing, cracking, and displacement of the cladding.
