This library, also known as the Earl W. Brydges Building, was designed in the “Brutalist” style and constructed between 1969-1974. Plagued with a series of roof and exterior wall leaks, the owner was initially concerned about the corrosion to library’s steel framework. RRJ’s investigation revealed that shoddy construction caused the leakage. Full repair consisted of removing the entire exterior wythe of masonry, reinforcing the structural frame, installing omitted vapor barriers and additional insulation, and replacing the exterior masonry with an exposed aggregate.
