Building Customer Relationships One Project at a Time
Columbia, SC- Repair J. Bratton Davis Federal Bankruptcy Court

Historical restoration of a National registered building including abatement, new roofing, exterior painting, metal work, and landscaping.

The exterior landscaping and painting project was designed to rehabilitate the exterior of the building and to return the landscape back to its original design, while allowing the building to be occupied on a regular schedule. The continued occupancy of the building presented a challenge with the scraping, cleaning, and painting of all vertical surfaces, and the application of a new built-up roof system. Scaffolding needed to be erected around the building thereby requiring the removal of existing metal grates over the basement light wells. During this process, existing drainage systems were cleaned out and landscaping features such as trees and shrubs removed to prevent future blockage.

Covered entrances were erected at the front and rear of the building which was maintained during the project.

Exterior cleaning with respect to the Lead and Asbestos survey had additional requirements (ACM & Lead, Scaffold, and Fabric) for the completion of this work. The use of equipment to clean the building was impacted by the high lead content of the old exterior paint. The exterior paint was failing as is indicated by the chalky and powdery residue evident when you wipe your hand across the surface.

In addition to this we have spotted more than 15 areas, which were previously patched and needed overhaul repair. On the roof 2 new drains were added. All roof drains from 4th floor up were replaced. The roof area was 3200 sf. We did sampling on the roof and determined that the roof was falling, insulation was wet and needed repair.
