Walker Consultants provided building envelope consulting services for the Easton Hospital campus. This 90-plus-year-old community hospital encompasses 2-city blocks with a total building footprint of 140,000 square feet ranging from 2 to 5 stories in height. Since opening in 1930, nine (9) building expansions were constructed primarily of clay-brick masonry walls, punched windows, and single-ply roofs.
Walker completed a visual assessment of the campus’ façade/fenestrations and examined and analyzed two previous campus-wide roofing assessments. Walker then issued a comprehensive asset management plan providing priority ranking of the full building envelope to initiate a proactive maintenance program.
Thanks to Walker’s planned approach to providing long-term repairs, the Client has a cost-effective, prioritized guide for the maintenance, repairs, and replacements of roofs, facades, and fenestrations.
