Milwaukee County selected K&H to perform up-close inspections of 100% of the building’s limestone facades to assess their general condition and complete a Critical Exam report required by the City of Milwaukee. Each proposing architecture or engineering firm was instructed to team with a masonry restoration contractor who would provide access for the inspections and complete “make-safe” repairs as needed. K&H served as the Architect of Record, with the masonry restoration contractor serving as a subcontractor.
K&H worked closely with the contractor to develop a winning plan for access to the facades, which was made challenging by the great depth of the façade at colonnades and cornices.
