Abbot Completes Masonry Restoration Project

Monterosa East Condominiums

Medford, MA  – Abbot recently completed a multi-phase masonry restoration project at the Monterosa East Condominiums, a 53-unit luxury high rise residential brick building built in the early 1980s.

In 2011, as the need for significant masonry repairs became apparent, the building owners contracted with the engineering consulting firm of Thompson & Lichtner to perform an initial survey from which to develop a comprehensive scope of repair work.  Abbot was awarded the contract.

The scope of work included the following services over the entire exterior of the building: caulking windows, replacing flashing over specified lintels, repointing defective brick joints, balcony repairs, cracked brick repairs, installation of expansion joints, and painting balcony railings.

The owners worked with Abbot to spread the work over a four-year period.
