War Memorial Building, Brockton


CBI was called on to repair severely deteriorated masonry and windows at the War Memorial Building in Brockton, Massachusetts.  Many windows had been covered with panels or plywood, with mechanical piping, ducts and louvers penetrating the panels.  Cracks in the brick and at several cast stone panels was caused by rust formation on the loose lintels for the windows.  CBI also found numerous joints that were cracked or open.


CBI first provided an evaluation of the exterior of the War Memorial Building in order to recommend repairs.  The entire entrance way was replaced with precast concrete to match the existing.  Masonry was cleaned and repointed.  The deteriorated freeze panels were replaced with molded glass fiber reinforced polymer [GFRP] panels, cast and colored with matching lettering and emblems to create an exact replication.
