Roof leaks that were identified shortly after construction continued after numerous repairs, leading store owners to suspect systemic problems. RRJ’s evaluation revealed cracks in the underlying concrete roof deck and showed that the deck design had not incorporated reinforcement capable of limiting crack widths.

These findings rebutted allegations that the roof problems were the result of improper concrete construction practices. RRJ developed repair concepts and details.
