Key CSI Projects Involving Building Facades

Children's Hospital Waltham - Nichols Building

Owner:       Children's Hospital Waltham

Location:   Waltham MA

Engineer/Architect:  Gale Associates

CSI was awarded the contract to reinforce and make structurally sound an array of pre-installed anchors, in order that a large scale industrial boiler exhaust system could be installed on the rear brick façade of the Nichols Building at Children's Hospital in Waltham, MA.

This involved the initial exploratory work which required creating test cuts in the existing masonry to aid the engineer in their investigation of the underlying structural conditions.

Once this was completed and the anchors were installed, CSI was responsible for encasing the anchors within the cavity in a non-shrink cementitious grout, and reinstalling the masonry to match the existing.

This project was completed on budget and on schedule with minimal disruption to the operations of the hospital.
