Marshall Wells Lofts Exterior Building Envelope and Window Repair

Portland, Oregon
Completed 2010 - 2013
Size: 280,000 square feet

The Marshall Wells property is a former industrial warehouse converted to 164 residential spaces in the heart of NW Portland’s Pearl District. Peter Meijer Architect, PC (PMA) provided a condition assessment of the exterior concrete facade and repair recommendations for the deteriorated conditions to the HOA and unit owners. PMA successfully addressed:

• Material failures,
• Flashing deficiencies and steel corrosion,
• And building movement all of which have led to water intrusion.

PMA prepared the documentation for bidding and construction; and in consultation with window contractor and the building management team, established a systematic review and assessment of butyl sealant failure of the existing windows and provided repair recommendations. Additionally, the Marshall Wells Lofts Condominium Association hired PMA to update the 2001 Preservation Plan to comply with statutes for Oregon State Special Assessment. The update includes the original Plan, annotated to indicate plan components that are completed, along with photo documentation.
