The 1960’s façade of the three-story, 70,000-SF Madeleva Hall on Saint Mary’s campus included full masonry restoration and repair, as well as the complete replacement of all exterior windows, storefront window systems, and curtain wall systems. The exterior renovation project was accomplished by phasing over two summers to minimize disruption to the users.
Masonry corrections included standard tuck point repairs and revising problematic ‘zipper’ joints at all of the building’s corners. Deteriorated precast exposed aggregate panels were replaced by an E.I.F.S detail with similar detail lines at all of the building’s sill shelf and window jamb conditions.
The original aluminum, single-pane, dark bronze windows were replaced. The new aluminum windows provide the office and classroom building with a modern energy-efficient window in an anodized aluminum finish. The increased area of glazing in the new windows provides improved natural daylight while increasing the energy efficiency in the overall building.
