Key CSI Projects Involving Building Facades

75 Kneeland St. Phase III Facade Restoration

Owner:       King Associates, LLP

Location:   Boston, MA

Engineer/Architect:  Developmental Resources

CSI successfully completed Phase III of the Façade Restoration project at 75 Kneeland Street in Boston, MA.

The base scope of work for this phase consisted of restoring the top two floors, including replacement of decorative precast pieces, installation of a new waterproofing system, replacement of relieving angles, and rebuilding of the masonry façade.

CSI worked closely with the building owner and the project engineer to respond to issues that arose through each phase of the project, including fabrication and installation of additional structural steel required to support the decorative precast at corners.

CSI also performed make-safe work at the completion of the project, including removal of potential spall hazards and stabilization of the masonry façade on the lower levels of the building by installing helical tie anchors.

Other repairs included removal and replacement of window perimeter sealants, patching and repairs to the structural concrete frame, repairs to the metal coping system, and installation of a new coating system over the decorative precast.
