Hotel Tria is located on Alewife Parkway in Cambridge, MA. The scope of work included removing and replacing the existing glazing with DOW 790 silicone sealant on the rear elevation windows & remove and replace the existing window perimeter and expansion joint sealants with DOW 795.

To this end, we cut and pointed deteriorated masonry mortar joints, replaced missing brick masonry units, and applied a water repellent to the West, South, and North elevations.
