Annex Building Roof Replacement and Exterior Masonry Repairs, Hartford, CT
Contract # GS-01P-08-BW-D-0073
Following the successful 2007 roof replacement and exterior restoration of the Abraham Ribicoff U.S. Courthouse and Federal Building at 450 Main Street, Hartford, Connecticut, Classic Site Solutions, Inc. was awarded the new contract for roof replacement and exterior masonry repairs for the Abraham Ribicoff Federal Annex Building.
The roof at this large and busy federal facility was leaking, and the granite veneer suffered from cracks and moisture intrusion resulting in water damage to offices and judges’ chambers. Despite the urgency of the situation, the facility could not be vacated to allow for repairs; therefore, work had to be performed in a manner that minimized noise levels and reduced the effects of dust, odors, and other irritants that would disrupt the proceedings ongoing within the building. Additionally, compliance with strict security requirements for operational federal courthouses was a priority.
Significant aspects of the project included the following:
- 18,000 square feet of roofing membrane, tapered roof insulation, flashing, and metal trim were replaced on nine different roof elevations.
- 4,000 lineal feet of joint sealant were replaced.
- 22,000 square feet of brick and granite veneer were cleaned, restored, and waterproofed.
- 250 lineal feet of limestone cap stones and coping were removed, repaired, and replaced.
