The 33-level Memorial Hermann Tower (POB V) was partially occupied when Hurricane Ike hit the Houston area. Levels one thru 27 are comprised of precast concrete panels, glazed aluminum curtain wall, punched windows and a built up roof. Levels 28 thru 33 utilize a custom curtain wall system to create a very contemporary combination of angles resembling a crown topped off with a built up roof. The facility was partially occupied while other floors were being built when hurricane Ike hit in September 2008. As infiltration issues were identified and hurricane damage assessed, Zero/Six was brought on board.
This diplomatically sensitive project had many vested team members, multiple outside consultants and legal counsel. Zero/Six’s services began with an extensive, multi-volume forensic report. Services were then expanded to including an onsite presence seven days a week providing detail sketches, quality control for remediation efforts and water testing. The team continues to provide Facility Asset Management services and perform inspections of the exterior envelope components for the Memorial Hermann Tower as per the prescribed maintenance protocol.
