Located in Northeast Minneapolis, this existing 42 unit condominium building had water intrusion into bay projections, drafty windows, and rotting decks. The project was completed over two phases to help address critical building deficiencies immediately while giving the owner time to fundraise for the more substantial work carried out in Phase II. The two phases included a complete siding and window replacement, changing flat to sloped roofs at the bays, removing faulty decks, and adding shed roofs to shelter building entrances.
McMonigal Architects advised the owner to have the existing structure forensic-tested prior to construction. As a result of this testing, the scope was altered to include repair of deteriorated areas and avoid change orders during construction.
Exterior color, material, and finish design options were studied and presented to the owner and residents.
