Kings County Hospital Center Renovation


 


HAKS was a member of the team inspecting repairs/renovations at the Kings County Hospital Center in Brooklyn. The $23 million project was advanced by the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York.  Three towers 8 to 12 stories high comprise the building complex. The towers, designated Buildings A, B and C, are interconnected by two- and three-story wings in adjoining courtyards and were in active use during construction. Built about 80 years ago, the towers consist of exterior brick masonry walls with lead panel accents at projecting bay windows. They generally terminate with parapet walls and have limestone copings at several roof levels. 

Our inspection concentrated on the building masonry and roofing. The masonry involved chemical cleaning of all facades at Buildings A, B, and C and removal and replacement of all parapet walls up through the limestone copings. Roofing work was performed on flat, clay tile and lead panel roofs. Flat roof replacement involved removal and replacement of roof assemblies, including asbestos-containing materials at Buildings A, B and C. Clay tile roof replacement involved removal and replacement of roof assemblies, including asbestos-containing materials, snow guards, flashing and wood blocking at Buildings A, B and C. Damaged lead panels were repaired.
