The Façade Replacement project involves study, probing and verification of existing conditions of the building envelope at the Campus Core West of the College at Old Westbury.
The project includes replacement of all windows; skylight and metal panel wall elements as well as re-roofing some of the roofs. Also new screen wall was added at the top of the building No.1.
YAS together with the architects prepared building elevations and reviewed existing wall details to determine locations of probes intended for verifications of existing conditions.
Finding of the verifications were documented in a report and submitted for SUCF for review. Existing framing of the building was reviewed for new wall loads. Structural drawings were prepared showing new details for wall attachment to structure as well screen wall support on existing roof framing.
Another part of the project involved re-design of the enclosure of two (2) existing pedestrian bridges connecting parking lot with the building No.1. New glazing with supporting framing will replace the existing enclosure that is deteriorated and leaking.
Supporting bridge abutments and framing was inspected for deficiencies and details developed for repairs.
