The owner of this white terra cotta an brick office building constructed in 1912 requested a detailed repair program for the terra cotta on the front facades of the building in conjunction with a window replacement program. Site investigation included scaffold drops to hammer test all of the terra cotta, including the deep terra cotta cornice. In addition to investigating the exterior of the building, the interior of the entire cornice was inspected reviewed and the terra cotta anchoring system was inspected. The firm developed a format detailing every location on the building needing attention and a corresponding photograph indicating the existing condition, with a written description of the repair required- 182 pages of requirements. While not retained to provide construction review services, we kept an eye on the work while on the site reviewing the floor by floor window replacement program.
