Rooftop pool and adjacent area renovations were undertaken on this building as a result of years of deterioration and material failures. Full investigative services were provided to evaluate options and design criteria. As with all restoration projects, a balance between cost and retrofit system performance drove the design. Additionally, the restoration demanded performance with the least inconvenience to the day-to-day operations of the facility. To this point, specific to this project, was the need to complete the task at hand in the midst of a typical Mid-Atlantic winter.

Unique limited site access, dictated by the approximate 250-foot elevation of work and tight urban-type site footprint, made this a particularly unique and challenging project. Equipment mobilization, material placement and weather concerns played a major role in the planning and implementation of the project. The project team pooled its collective and extensive experience to adapt and overcome the pitfalls of this challenging undertaking.
