Comprehensive Masonry Repair: Ensuring Building Safety and Longevity


The masonry at McMynn Tower Apartments was experiencing significant distress with cracked, damaged brick with masonry becoming unattached and beginning to fall from the building.

BEPG was retained by Future WI Housing Fund to complete an initial assessment, design / bidding document development, bidding services, and construction administration for comprehensive masonry restoration.

3D Model generated from drone inspection & LIDAR laser scans

Using BEPG’s in-house 3d drone photogrammetry and LIDAR capabilities, a thorough assessment and documentation of the conditions was developed. This information was then used to develop detailed construction documents resulting in a project with less than 3% change orders during construction.

The masonry restoration project replaced all shelf-angles at each floor, rebuilt the parapets with modified attachment to the existing concrete frame structure, and masonry repair / replacement throughout the building.
