Condominium Building – Seattle, WA
Building Envelope Investigation and Repair Design
In 2008 Pacific Engineering Technologies was hired to conduct an investigation to review the as-built construction of the six-story condominium building. The investigation included review of original construction documents, intrusive openings and documentation of field observations. Pacific Engineering Technologies subsequently assisted the Homeowners’ Association with remediation of deficiencies with the developer.
In 2009 and 2012 Pacific Engineering Technologies developed a budget sensitive phased scope of repair based on the observations during the investigation. The repairs included a partial reclad of the building, deck enhancements and waterproof coatings, deck guardrail replacement, parapet coping replacement and 6th floor trellis replacement. Pacific Engineering Technologies assisted the Homeowners’ Association by soliciting contractor bids and continued observations throughout the construction process. During the course of construction, we worked directly with the contractor and reported progress to the Homeowners’ Association.
