performed an initial investigation where the
evaluation of waterproofing failures led to further review of key structural

The hotel became the center of decision making for the city of Richmond prior to the construction of the Richmond Civic Center. The building now functions as senior housing center.
A complete repair package and estimates were developed for a long term program to rehabilitate the facility, including fenestration, repairs to the concrete structure of the building, waterproofing and building envelope replacement and repairs, historic storefront repairs with the restoration of specific historic elements, ADA improvements in the units as well as common areas of the building, addition of open space for the tenants, and the addition of solar electric and solar heating systems.
