Rehabilitation of a 173'  radial brick chimney

Nearly 50% of the exterior mortar joints, between the two radial brick boiler chimneys at the University, were in a deteriorated condition. GCI repaired more than 22,000 lineal feet of mortar joints in conjunction with nearly 300 bricks being replaced throughout the structures.

  • Perform more than 22,000 lineal feet of mortar joint repairs
  • Install new / replacement components to the existing Lightning Protection Systems; such as new Air Terminals, down lead anchors, and encircling cable
  • Removal and replacement of (6) six existing bolted flange-type reinforcing bands with new lap weld-type reinforcing bands at the same elevations
