Tire Discounters Home Office – Concrete and Masonry
SSRG performed concrete and masonry repairs for the renovation of a historic downtown building into the new Tire Discounters home office. The original structure was built in 1919 and now offers six stories of modern office space.
Tire Discounters chose to renovate a historic Downtown Cincinnati building for their new headquarters. The building dates back to 1919, and the age of the building showed. SSRG was brought on as a specialty contractor to:
- Repair concrete beams
- Perform masonry repairs
- Repair window openings in preparation for window replacements.
Specific details of the scope included:
- Sealant replacement of terra cotta coping on approximately 96 coping stone joints.
- Masonry tuckpointing on 15% of overall brick facade on East & South elevation
- Concrete beam repairs at approximately 20 windows
Work was also performed on the West retaining wall and infill area well. This work required removing existing windows and infilling with 8″CMU grouted solid with reinforcing. The teams then anchored the CMU to jambs, filled the window well with leancrete, and finished the top of leancrete with 4″ of reinforced concrete sidewalk. Finally, waterproofing was applied between the leancrete and the concrete.
A very difficult project for safe removal of 2, 3 and 4 story parts of the building. This required extreme concentration, super aggressive Bobcat demo ace, experienced creativity, heads-down hard workers, there every day, excellent wood framing leadership and crew. Completed on time, all this thru the winter months. Tough job, Done well. Thanks.
