Under the first work order, KEG personnel performed an infrared study to find leaks, potential infiltration areas, or other anomalies on 16 buildings throughout the site. This study identified air exfiltration from many doors and windows, heat loss on dead panels that replaced old windows and doors, walls with moisture intrusion, and potential electrical faults in wiring. 

 

With the information from the study and additional site inspections, under the second work order, KEG provided details and typical sections on CAD files provided by SCB for wall and parapet repairs, as well as needed deck replacements. KEG also provided structural specification sections as needed for the above mentioned work. 

Under the third work order, KEG provided plans and specifications for a failing wall and parapet. KEG personnel also attended the preconstruction meeting and made additional site visits during construction.
