Charlestown, MA Abbot Building Restoration Company, Inc.’s small projects division completed a concrete repair project at Mass General Brigham Hospital’s campus. Based on Abbot’s long-standing relationship with this institution, Abbot was contracted to repair two deteriorated concrete awnings/overhangs on the garage across from the Center of Immunology and Inflammatory Diseases at 149 13th St.
Abbot sound tested the concrete to determine areas of delamination, and then removed the loose and debonded concrete, and patched these areas with Eucorepair V100 repair mortar (Euclid Chemical, Cleveland, OH) to match the existing profile.
In certain larger areas where concrete forms could be used, Abbot added epoxy coated rebar where necessary, and poured Euclid Eucocrete concrete repair mortar with aggregate into the forms.When all of the repairs were completed, Abbot painted the awning with an elastomeric paint to match the existing color and texture. For access to the overhead work area, Abbot utilized a small scissor lift that provided a secure and comfortable work platform for the crew.
Abbot provides a broad range of masonry construction services to public, institutional, and commercial clients, including condominiums, property management entities, and private residences. The firm also acts as a general contractor for a variety of masonry building construction projects.
