RestorationProject: Re-roofing and Waterproofing University Center - UNO
Location: New Orelans, LA
Completed: October 2009
Contract Amount: $774,903.00

United Restoration recently teamed up with A&L Roofing to provide a complete restoration and waterproofing envelope for the University Center at the University of New Orleans. This specialty building serves as a gathering point for students while also providing dining, meeting rooms, a student bookstore and employment recruiting facilities.

The architect Burgdahl & Graves designed and specified a multitude of repairs, including the following:

  • Replace 530 L.F. of structural cantilevered steel lintel.
  • Remove (3) rows of brick, shore, provide new stainless steel and sheet flashing at 850 L.F. of perimeter walls of all roofs and terraces.
  • Caulking and wet glazing of over 31,500 L.F. of window perimeters, glass to metal and masonry control joints.
  • Miscellaneous re-pointing of 17,176 L.F. of defective or cracked mortar joints.
  • Reinforcement and anchoring of existing precast to precast and precast to steel angles with 795 Torq-Lok and 1,231 Spira-Lok anchors.
  • American Hydrotech hot applied waterproof membrane and flashing installed at (2) terrace level decks.
  • Clean and clear sealer of all exterior brick surfaces, and elastomeric coating of all previously painted concrete handrails, columns and stairs.

This multi-faceted project required a team effort of inspections, testing and coordinating of numerous product manufacturers, sub-contractors, inspectors, architects and owners.  Great communication and scheduling between all parties involved was achieved to make the job a total success.
