The Gregory Condominiums Deck RemediationBuilt in 2000, the Gregory Condominiums is a 12-story condominium building with 133 residential units located in Portland’s desirable Pearl District neighborhood. Major defects in the building’s existing roof and deck membranes led to premature water intrusion throughout the upper levels of the building. Charter’s remediation team was selected to perform repairs on the roofs and decks.
Logistics were a major challenge at the Gregory Condominiums project due to its busy urban location and occupied units. Charter developed a plan to limit disruption as much as possible to on-street traffic and pedestrians while repairs were made to the building’s exterior. Cranes were also used to remove the existing pavers and rock ballast and to hoist new materials into place. Charter’s remediation team performed targeted repairs to affected areas by removing the existing brick near deck intersections. Exterior sheathing and framing was inspected for rot and water damage and repaired as necessary and new flashing and waterproof membranes were installed. Crews also removed and reinstalled French doors to integrate with new waterproofing.
While Charter’s remediation team performed repairs to the exterior of The Gregory, the special projects team performed repairs to failed water mains located throughout the interior. Each team was run separately to ensure that projects stayed on schedule and on budget and that client expectations were met or exceeded.
