Stonemark Performs Destructive Testing

Investigation of Construction Defects

As part of Stonemark’s construction management strategies for project success, we first performed an investigation into existing conditions.  Destructive testing was performed to see conditions inside the building assemblies at the wall to deck junctures, weep screeds, and inside the planters.  As evidenced by water infiltration, spalling and other damage to the underside of the slab as seen in the parking garage, we determined that the waterproofing at the top of the slab had failed. Apparently, the water infiltration problem is long-term and widespread.


The condition of the plaza deck waterproofing, the numerous repair attempts, and the water infiltration in the garage soffit below indicate that the plaza deck waterproofing system has exceeded its effective life expectancy and must be replaced.
