This prominent Lake Shore Drive hi-rise was in need of facade maintenance to stave off the adverse effects of being located on the lake shore. Wind and rain had eroded a significant number of mortar joints, leading to water infiltration. Design Installation Systems was asked to locate and repair water damaged steel within the wall via inspection openings and to then to replace deteriorated brick and steel in the faƧade. When the repairs were completed, tuck pointing and sealant work returned the masonry to its intended water tight condition.
