Wellesley College  Wellesley, MA

Our firm led a campus-wide building envelope study and construction program at Wellesley College aimed at developing a phased façade reconstruction plan. The study included seven buildings ranging in type from traditional collegiate Gothic brick veneer, to metal panel façade wall systems, to slate and standing seam roof systems. We evaluated each structure in the field, compiled comprehensive documentation for costing analysis, and provided direction for an economical application of available funds.

Upon completion of the study, in collaboration with Consigli Construction, we directed the rehabilitation. The scope of improvements encompassed a broad range of repairs, including limestone de-scaling and selective ornamental replacement; masonry repointing; metal panel replacement; repair of slate, standing seam and rubber membrane roof systems; flashing repairs; and selective veneer wall reconstruction. Eight million dollars in construction repairs took place during a single summer break.
