The 14-story and courthouse annex Hanley FederalBuilding was constructed in 1974. The concrete façade started to spall creating a potential hazard to pedestrians.
As a consultant to NK Bhandari, Bell & Spina conducted an initial visual inspection of the façade close-up and using scopes from surrounding buildings. Field investigations and analysis of the original construction details revealed “thin cover” to the reinforcing steel leading to systemic sub-surface corrosion and building wide cracking and spalling of the concrete façade.
"Bell & Spina's impeccable credentials as exterior envelope specialists, steadfast attention to detail and unparalleled concern for a quality project, set them apart from other architectural firms."
