Bridgepoint Condominium

LaCosta Office Building
Austin, TX
Neoprene gasket wall system set into brick veneer. Aynesworth's investigation discovered that the copper throughwall flashing had been cutout during construction so that building leaked for more than a decade. Numerous attempts to "caulk" the building failed because the problem could not be solved with a surface solution. Aynesworth's solution is to remove three courses of brick and rebuild the throughwall flashing.
