Project Information

The Mother Brook Condominium complex is a historic, 19th-century granite mill building on the Mother Brook Mill Pond that was converted to condominiums in 1987. The condominiums were constructed on stone foundations, with a stream running throughout the complex.

Façade improvements were necessary to maintain the property’s historical integrity while addressing many waterproofing concerns. Most of the project required ESI to prevent water from penetrating through the elevated common area deck and into the parking garage below.

The project consisted of demolishing the 2″ concrete topping slab and two concrete stairways. The elevated slab was waterproofed with a neoprene membrane, appropriate flashings, masonry wall repairs, CMU structural steel replacement, and newly installed plaza drains.

The waterproofed deck was protected with new pre-cast concrete pavers on pedestals to provide a wearing surface for the residents. After the project was completed, the condominium owners were pleased with the results.

We provided them with a visually pleasing plaza deck using multi-colored pavers, which allowed water to pass between the pavers into the new drainage system.
