Madrona Medical Center
This three-story, medical clinic suffered moisture damage caused by improper framing and failures of the window and exterior EIFS cladding systems. Remediation involved the removal and replacement of the EIFS as well as repair and reinforcement of the steel stud exterior wall framing. Simultaneously, the building entry was modified to provide additional wind protection for the main lobby. Heightened employee screening, security badges and work during nights and weekends were necessary due to the presence of controlled substances, patient/doctor confidentiality and health concerns of their elderly, ailing patients.
