Indiana University Harper Hall Building Envelope Repairs

Bloomington, Indiana

American Structurepoint completed a façade investigation of a ten-story dormitory building on the Indiana University Bloomington campus. Serious deficiencies in the limestone façade attachment system to the building were discovered. Our forensic engineers recommended that upwards of 75 percent of the limestone façade panels should be removed and reset with a new anchorage system.

The University initiated a repair project where American Structurepoint conducted additional, in-depth investigation of the façade anchorage system to the building structure and then produced construction documents, including specifications and drawings, for the façade repairs on all elevations of the building. The winning bid for repairs came in at around $1.5 million, to be completed within a 12-month construction time frame, with our consulting team providing construction administration services throughout the construction phase of the project.
