This was a complete penthouse renovation located on the 47th Floor of a prominent NYC address. The entire north façade is a full height continuous window wall. The existing windows were leaking and required complete replacement including new curbs and flashing details. All the work needed to be completed while maintaining the building envelope to protect the construction site and other apartments below.
RESULTS & SOLUTION
To complete window replacement while protecting the building from the elements we devised a very specific procedure of work. All steps were sequenced whereby a designated section of windows was removed at a time. A temporary weather tight enclosure was assembled while we rebuilt the curbs and flashing in that area. The windows were coordinated to be delivered daily and installed at each subsequent perimeter section to minimize that amount of time the temporary enclosure was required to remain in place.
