Employees of Western Specialty Contractors - Orlando, Fla. branch recently received high praise from Cushman & Wakefield property management for their scheduling flexibility and professionalism while replacing sealants on the Millennia Lakes office building facade in Orlando, Fla.
Western crews prepared progress reports and updated schedules for the Cushman & Wakefield management team on a weekly basis as part of their on-site progress meetings. The six-month project was completed in November, 2015.
"Cushman & Wakefield values its partnership with Western. The countless times its team rearranged its schedule to accommodate a proposal is truly a testament to the partnership we have built in Florida," said Harry Moseley of Cushman & Wakefield. "The job Western's team did at the Millennia Lakes building was the most professional. Our chief engineer and property manager felt very comfortable talking with Western's superintendent daily; he was very organized with progress reports every Friday for our site meetings. Western's leadership and values are apparent with the entire staff. We look forward to working with Western for many years."
Western's scope of work on the seven-story building's exterior included replacing all existing window and precast sealants with Dow Corning 790 and 795 silicone sealants. Western crews applied glazing to 32,000 feet of glass and installed sealants on 8,700 feet of structural glass and 11,000 feet of precast. Western crews also cleaned 23,000 square feet of masonry on the building's facade, followed by a BASF Master Protect 400 sealer. Western crews utilized a combination of swing stages and man lifts to perform the repairs. Overhead protection was erected at several areas of the building to maintain direct access to work areas.
