The Charleston Judicial Center was constructed in approximately 2001 and had experienced numerous leaks since the building was occupied. Mold had formed as a result of water intrusion at all levels of the building, including the basement. Stafford Consulting Engineers conducted an extensive investigation into the causes of leaks through the building envelope. The investigation consisted of visual observations of both interior and exterior spaces, including areas above ceilings, water testing, infrared testing & destructive testing. The observations included building components such as masonry walls, windows, glass fiber reinforced concrete cornices, limestone panels, doors, clerestories, and roofs. Stafford Consulting Engineers was subsequently retained to design the entire recladding of the building envelope. Stafford produced construction plans and specifications, performed contract administration services and provided full-time inspection services for this project.
