Twelve Central Square
This is a 10-building stucco-clad apartment complex with 26,000 sf of connecting courtyards built atop a steel-reinforced slab above a below-grade parking area. We initially contracted to replace the courtyard topping and membranes and tie them into approximately 4,000 sf of stucco at the wall bases. However, initial repairs not only uncovered severely damaged framing and sheathing but potentially dangerous construction defects, including large voids in the concrete slab, mis-aligned sill plates and incomplete or missing anchor bolts. Chasing and repairing the damaged components resulted in replacing 40,000 sf of stucco and 125 windows, 800 anchor bolts and completely resloping the structural slab to prevent future damage.
