Logan Park Elderly Housing is a 4.5 story, 100 unit residential apartment complex in Braintree, MA. After 25+ years of exposure to the New England weather, the EIFS façade became deteriorated and was allowing water to infiltrate the building. Wessling Architects was engaged to complete extensive building review and analysis. After assisting the owner with a competitive bid process, Page Building Construction, Co., of Stoughton, MA, was selected for the exterior restoration. The project included complete EIFS removal back to existing sheathing, replacement of sheathing, application of waterproofing and flashing and a new EIFS system.
The end results: The project team [Owner, Contractor and Architect] completed a very successful exterior restoration while the building remained fully occupied. Wessling Architects interior designers and architectural studio worked together to select new color schemes for the exterior façade. The building envelope specialists worked on making design changes, more suitable for the northeast environment, to the architectural features while maintaining a similar welcoming aesthetic to the building. The technical details included the design of the systems to integrate with many existing features including: the double hung vinyl replacement windows, the steep sloped asphalt roof drip edge, and the intersection of an existing addition.
