Chezcore, Inc. was awarded the
project at the William Beaumont Hospital, Troy Campus to replace
the defective thru-wall flashings and restore the supporting steel.
The work, that included the entire Old West Addition, incorporated
just less than 3,000 lineal feet of thru-wall flashing detail to
be repaired. Working on the outside walls of patient rooms, over
25,000 brick units were removed to expose the defective flashing
and steel condition. The existing flashing was removed to expose
the support steel which was mechanically cleaned. A rust inhibitor
coating was applied to the steel and a two part rubber membrane/stainless
steel thru-wall flashing system was fabricated and installed. 25,000
new brick units were then laid back into their prepared openings
and over 6,400 lineal feet of caulking was installed to seal the
joints. The finished product was a sound, restored wall condition
with a functional thru-wall flashing system.
The project was performed from swing stage
scaffolds suspended five stories above the various roof levels completed
over 2½ seasons. There was minimal disruption to patient’s
throughout the duration of the project which was a testament to
the coordination between Chezcore, Inc. and William Beaumont Hospital
personnel. The project was completed within the budget and on schedule,
much to the Owner’s satisfaction.
