Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Hamilton Building

CVM performed repair to an exposed concrete building frame for a 10-story building in downtown Philadelphia. The concrete frame members occur on two sides of the existing building, and had varying degrees of deterioration, causing both structural issues and the risk of falling spalled concrete.

Using swing scaffold access, CVM performed an up-close, hands-on evaluation of the members to identify all areas in need of repair. CVM then developed a comprehensive concrete repair program for the building, and worked closely with repair contractors during the repair program, ensuring that all steps were properly implemented in the finished work.
