Water Intrusion Project Update as of July 8
Dry weather conditions have allowed work to progress a bit ahead of our anticipated schedule. On the east side of the front building, the waterproofing and through-wall flashing is complete, larger (6”) roof drain lines and cleanout T’s have been connected to each downspout and the area has been backfilled with stone and dirt. (Note: the previous soil used for backfilling contained heavy concentrations of clay which prevented the soil around the foundation from draining properly. The engineers and contractors are replacing the clay soil with a better quality fill dirt which will allow water to drain more efficiently. Also, additional amounts of stone have been added to the bottom of each excavation trench to facilitate better drainage.) On the west side of front building, the new CMU wall is complete and waterproofed, new underground drain lines have been installed and the area has been backfilled with stone and dirt to ½ height. Backfill to full height and work on the through-wall flashing will begin in the next week. On the south end of front building, the contractor is continuing work to install waterproofing. On the east side of the back building, the through-wall flashing is complete and the area from the back stairwell around the north end of building and into playground area will be excavated starting the week of July 11. On the west side of the back building, the thresholds on the 6 playground doors in the project area have been removed in order to facilitate installation of the through-wall flashing underneath the door frames. All other through-wall flashing on this side – outside of the door frames – is complete. Anticipated work in the next two weeks includes: continuation of excavation, waterproofing and through-wall flashing in areas that are not complete, beginning the reconstruction of the columbarium affected areas, replacement of concrete pads and the reinstallation of the HVAC units. In the interior, the tile flooring in the front building downstairs restrooms and stairwell (near room 012 – Journey Sunday school classroom) has been removed to allow the slab to dry out completely. The Board of Trustees strives to be open and transparent with this and all work. Work site pictures are available on the website and at the Welcome Centers. Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask a Trustee or call Tammy at the church office.
