U of U Student Apartment Balcony Repairs

Built in the early 1960′s (like me) the steel and concrete balconies at the U of U Married Student Apartments are beginning to show their wear (like me).  For the fifth consecutive summer, Veritas will strip the damaged concrete and steel, replace, repair, sandblast, and epoxy coat remaining elements, and pour new lightweight concrete decks.  These will be the 10th and 11th balconies we have repaired for the U of U.

During demolition existing concrete is carefully removed from the balconies.

Once the concrete is out, the metal deck is removed and recycled. The structure is ready for sandblasting.

The same process happens on the concrete landings. Here great care is taken to avoid damaging the pipes and wires under the metal deck.

The new metal deck is in place. The next step is pouring a new concrete balcony.
