Evanston Parking Garages

CTLGroup was retained by the City of Evanston to inspect the exterior envelope of two parking garages in downtown Evanston, Illinois. The objectives of the work were to evaluate the condition of the exterior facade for both garages and provide repair recommendations with associated budgetary cost estimates.

Our evaluation included close-up field investigation performed from grade, roof, interior, and exterior of each floor. Exterior surfaces above grade level were accessed via swing stage and boom lift. Work included review of available construction documents, visual observations, and hammer sounding to identify delaminations.

Our team prepared plans and specifications to repair the observed deterioration and assisted the City during the bidding process. CTLGroup observed the repairs to verify that the work conformed with the project specifications. Repairs included masonry flashing, sealant replacement, and storefront replacement.
