M.D. Anderson Library Façade Repair


The limestone and glass façade of the 1950s M.D. Anderson Library on the University of Houston main campus was experiencing moisture intrusion. By performing a building envelope waterproofing evaluation, it was determined that the cavity wall system was not functioning properly and required significant restoration to ensure long-term building performance. Repair documents were prepared to allow the exterior wall system to properly weep bulkwater and limit air infiltration. All of the façade panels were removed, corrective waterproofing was applied, and the original panels were reinstalled. Comprehensive construction administration services helped the project to finish three months ahead of schedule.
