Harris Theater for Music and Dance | Randolph Street Plaza

Chicago, Illinois

A joint investigation and repair designs were developed to address the water leaks at this multi-use performing arts facility in Millennium Park.  Due to its unique construction below grade, much of the "roof" is covered with landscaping or structures of Upper Randolph Plaza. The investigative included a review of the original drawings and construction photographs, excavations made through the overburden at several of the persistent leak areas to expose and document the waterproofing configurations, along with building occupant interviews regarding the history of the various leaks.
