The building’s factory-applied coating system reached the end of its service life, leaving the façade discolored and damaged. Repairs were also needed in areas where old signage had existed. Additionally, building sealant and gaskets reached the end of their service life and began to fail.
The client was looking for a solution with longevity that would extend the service of the building’s façade for a considerable length of time. Stuart Dean partnered with Western Construction Group to offer a total building envelope solution and one point of contact for the client.
Stuart Dean refinished more than 35,000 square feet of the exposed architectural metal on the building’s façade, including the application of protective coatings on these surfaces and the removal of sealants and gaskets. Stuart Dean also cleaned and re-polished all stainless steel window mullions on all elevations and added new stainless steel column base covers at the ground floor entrances.
Other services provided included the repainting of the generator cover, repainting the soffit ceilings on the ground floor, and the refinishing and re-roping of the flagpole.
