The six-story hotel also houses a one-story conference center at the south end. Shortly after construction, hotel personnel observed leaks at several locations. The original contractor asked SGH to investigate the leaks, develop a repair plan, and oversee repairs.
SGH investigated the reported leakage and collaborated with the contractor to develop a repair plan that could be implemented while the building remained occupied. Highlights of our repair design include the following:
- Installing flashing and interior louver waterproofing without removing the existing windows or louvers
- Installing pan flashing below the curtain wall by lowering the front edge of the sill to create the necessary slope for drainage
- Developing details to integrate the weather barrier between adjacent walls systems
- Adding through-wall flashing at the roof line and where a low roof meets a rising wall
We performed confirmation testing to verify repairs successfully addressed the issues.
