The New River Center is located in the heart of Fort Lauderdale. Age and exposure to the elements had caused deterioration of the building’s sealants. Additionally, the building needed to be cleaned and sealed.
Western Specialty Contractors’ Fort Lauderdale branch was selected as the specialty contractor to complete this work. The Conley Group served as the project architect.
Western’s crew removed the old sealant from the glass-to-metal, metal-to-metal and perimeter joints. Dow’s 795 and 790 silicone sealants were used as the replacement materials. End dams were installed in the curtain wall.
To complete the project, the exterior was pressure washed and sealed with Iso-Flex silane penetrating sealer.
The work was completed using swing scaffolding and a scissor lift.
