As buildings are exposed to weather and time, they can be in need of refurbishing. Such is the case with the Capitol Federal Bank building at Nall and 95th in Overland Park. Restoration and Waterproofing Contractors, Inc., was subcontracted to clean and remove all exterior sealants. RWC then replaced all of the old exterior sealants with new material. After the materials cured, RWC installed an elastomeric coating to all remaining exposed aggregate panels, which brightened up the exterior. This project’s RWC foreman was Scott Pankratz.
Restoration and Waterproofing Contractors, Inc., in Wichita has been working with Dondlinger Construction on building the new Immaculate Heart of Mary Convent and Chapel just south of Colwich. In 1976 three sisters came to Wichita following a directive from Rome and established the order. They have grown to 22 women and have never had a permanent home. This construction represents the first community to construct a convent in the state of Kansas in more than 100 years.
Restoration and Waterproofing Contractors, Inc., is working on the new Southeast High School campus in Wichita. In the summer of 2014 a $60 million bond issue was passed to build the new school. RWC is working with Dondlinger Construction to install all of the below-grade waterproofing, damp-proofing, air barrier, sealants and the crystalline waterproofing for this project.
As Phase Three of the Bill Snyder Family Stadium Master Plan, with an estimated cost of $65 million for the completed project, Restoration and Waterproofing Contractors, Inc., contributed as subcontractors for Mortensen/GEJohnson with below-grade waterproofing, split-slab deck waterproofing, architectural joint sealants and expansion control. RWC also worked for Midwest Drywall, Inc., of Wichita, Prestressed Concrete of McPherson and Gallegoes Masonry of Denver. RWC’s project managers were David Falley and Ryan Flesher. The job site superintendent was Tim Koch.
Restoration & Waterproofing Contractors is performing restoration on the Unity Village Tower in Unity Village, a unique regional landmark, also on the National Register of Historic Places.
On the exterior design build, RWC is working on concrete restoration, stone and cast stone restoration and cleaning, new cast stone masonry and installation of a cold fluid waterproofing system.
RWC performed an initial cleaning to remove all surface contaminants with detergent (a standard procedure on most restoration projects), repair and spot coating, removing and replacing damaged or missing terra cotta and masonry units, with new materials custom-fabricated to match the existing items, tuckpointing, window protection, brick and clay tile repair, joint repair, column repair and tuckpointing masonry.
Restoration & Waterproofing Contractors’ work on the Clay County Courthouse in Clay Center consisted of massive stone replacement, tuck-pointing 100 percent of the mortar joints on the courthouse, and cleaning.
RWC worked with PBA architects to replace deteriorated stone and patch a large portion of stone that had minor problems. Lardner Stone supplied the stone for the job.
RWC’s work included repairing masonry walls above the top two floors of the parking garage, miscellaneous tuckpoint and damaged mortar joint repair, and application of Sherwin Williams Elastomeric Coating to all masonry walls. The parking deck was in such bad condition that the old coat was removed to expose the original concrete deck. Then the concrete was sounded out and bad concrete was removed and patched with new concrete material.
RWC work includes inspecting all the masonry on the south elevation and making necessary repairs to the brick and terra cotta features.
Since The Wareham is located in a busy downtown, and houses the local favorite Harry’s restaurant on the first floor, this project poses some unique challenges for RWC working around visitors.
