Waterproofing the Foundation Plant Services building

August 24, 2018

Water penetration and disintegrating stucco is no longer a problem at the Foundation Plant Services building thanks to deferred maintenance funding and a dedicated Facilities Management team.

Sheet metal workers, painters, and carpenters worked closely for about 3 months to complete the project that started with the temporary relocation of the building’s iconic rose bushes while construction took place. They then got to work with on the intense process of stucco demolition, which involves chipping away at the crumbling stucco and prying off the wire mesh behind it.
