Do you notice how the before and after images for this project look almost the same? That’s because sometimes the most appropriate repair strategy consists of targeted repairs that address the problems while still preserving the original design intent. As in targeted repairs that don’t look like repairs – so your building looks as good as it did when it was first built.
BC Building Science and Alternate Glazing Systems have been retained by the Owners of the Wall Centre Residential Tower to conduct a targeted glazing refurbishment project at their 30-storey building. The aged, displaced, and deteriorating curtain-wall gaskets are being replaced. Alternative Glazing Systems is replacing the exterior gaskets and BC Building Science is currently performing field reviews of this building envelope maintenance work. Similar work was conducted at the Vancouver Sheraton Hotel Tower last year.
