The GM of this AOAO reported that the rooftop AC equipment tower was leaking through the roof slab into the penthouse units below. Aiello responded immediately - on an emergency basis - to ascertain the source of the leaks. His prompt inspection revealed that failures in the roof membrane and scupper system throughout the entire roof were the causes of the leaks, not the AC equipment.
At the client’s request, Aiello quickly produced a Scope of Repairs [SOR] and contract documents to define the repair project. Those documents, along with Aiello’s good trade relationship, assisted to negotiate an extremely reasonable cost from a roofing contractor that could mobilize quickly. The roofing repair project was underway three-weeks after the initial call.
Aiello Design Group works with a cadre of Structural Engineers specializing in Settlement and Expansion Crack Repair, Concrete Spall Repair, Post Pocket Water Penetration Repair and General Concrete Reconditioning Projects.
As Project Manager, Aiello assesses the extent of the damage initially providing the client with an estimated budget and schedule for the work. Production of engineered construction documents are coordinated for building permits, trade cost negotiations and construction. Inspection reports are produced during construction, including photographic and written documentation, and provided for the client’s files. A project closeout report is provided as well.
The GM called to assess the source of what was thought to be a leak in the pool shell. The pool, located at a raised recreation deck above retail spaces, had been leaking for months. Reviewing the construction drawings, construction photos and other documentation, Aiello determined that the cause of the leak was not the pool shell, but was caused by leaking membranes in raised planters causing water to migragte between the rec deck surface and the structural slab. Invasive inspection and dye testing data confirmed the leak source and aided in the determination of the repair.
Condo-Hotel attorney requested an ADA assessment for the property. Having been built in the '60's, accessablilty to the main lobby did not meet current DOJ ADAAG standards. ADG's solution included adjusting gradients of access routes, installation of a chair lift, signage, new parking layouts and striping. Construction time was limited to 30 days with emphasis on minimal disruption hotel guests. Project completed on time and at budget.
The corrective measures met the standards set by the Courts to the satisfaction of the AOAO, the Hotel Operator and the attorneys involved.
The GM requested a proposal to provide services for the assessment of the roofing conditions, develop a Scope Of Repair (SOR), provide bid documentation, bidding and administrative services during construction.
ADG coordinates roofing consultants and reputible roofing contractors to evaluate your needs and provide a timely and equitable bid proposal for Board review and consideration.
Built in 1928, this 2-mile long man made waterway has had a problematic history for the City and State since its inception. At present, deteriorating conditions in the basalt rock revetment structure and foundation failures have caused severe degradation of the concrete promenade running its length. Additional attention has been brought regarding life safety issues and known ADA violations. With a fall distance greater than 30-inches to the water, ADG proposed a handicap friendly guardrail system for the full length of the Ala Wai Canal.
