Bid documents for rehabilitation projects of traditional masonry wall systems should address two fundamental issues. First\, all existing conditions\, particularly concealed conditions\, are not known and can’t be known until the work begins. Further\, these conditions are progressively revealed as the work progresses. Second\, the as-built geometry of the concealed portions of assembly may differ from what was revealed during the investigation or what was shown on the drawings. These geometries and concealed conditions could require modifications of the assumed repair details and potentially the scope and extent of repairs. Once the repair work begins\, interaction and communication between the contractor\, designer and owner are critical to the success of the project and controlling project costs. This session will introduce the basic approaches for implementation of the rehabilitation including document preparation and field implementation of the repairs. \n\n\nView the Existing Masonry Night School Series and register here \n\n\nIf you have already registered\, use this link to access the streaming info.\nYou must be logged in to access this page.\n\nAbout the Presenter\n \nEdward Gerns is a Senior Principal with the Chicago office of Wiss\, Janney\, Elstner Associates\, Inc. and has been with WJE since 1990.
