tan. “We performed extensive aesthetic and infrastructure renovations to the 10,500 s/f facility, including work on the steampipe network and the concrete structural system underneath the pool,” stated Kevin Harney , Stalco’s prin- cipal and CFO. While the pool was taken out of service during construc- tion, the team was working during the school year (as well as over holidays) in an occu- pied building on a busy college campus within a crowded city. Thus, security of access and construction safety were of the utmost importance. “First, we completely fenced off the entire construction area, mak- ing sure students and faculty could not enter the site. The next step was to remove two large 5'x12' windowpanes from the pool area on the Har- rison St. side. With this, we created independent access to the construction area,” said Stalco’s Christopher Caul- field , a superintendent on the project. The Stalco team was careful to ensure that this independent access did not interfere with foot traffic. In addition to Stalco, the project team included con- struction manager AECOM ; the architect and engineer of record was MP Engineers & Architects ; Genesys Engineering P.C. was the mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) engineer; Eldor Contracting Corpo- ration was the electrical con- tractor; Premier Mechani- cal Services, Inc. served as mechanical contractor; ARA Plumbing Corporation was the plumbing contractor; Norberto Pools served as the pool contractor; and the waterproofing and tile work subcontractor was Baybrent Tile Corporation . The Stalco team replaced or repaired the steampipes, including replacing two 14" steam lines and one 12" steam line of about 20 feet long. In addition, Stalco made exten- sive concrete repairs on the south and west sides of the pool, using Sika Duoflex SL (a two-component, self-leveling, polysulfide sealant), Sika Ar- matec 110 EpoCem (bonding agent), and SikaGrout 328 (a high-performance grout with extended working time) to repair cracks. The scope also included upgrading the HVAC systems. 
