SGH assessed the condition of the building enclosure and surrounding features, water tested to identify leakage paths, and made observations at exploratory openings to document concealed construction. We identified waterproofing deficiencies, drainage issues, and deterioration of the surrounding concrete structures.
SGH presented our findings to the project architect and the university’s construction personnel. We then designed repairs, including the following:
Removing and replacing waterproofing at building walls, multiple plaza levels, planters, and stairs
Installing new plaza topping slabs to protect the waterproofing
Repairing deteriorated concrete on plaza decks
Removing and replacing badly deteriorated concrete stairs, stair walls, and the plaza slab-on-grade
The complicated plaza configuration around the theater building made these areas difficult for UDC to access. By providing UDC with a comprehensive and long-term plaza rehabilitation, we helped them protect their newly renovated theater and minimize their future maintenance burden.
