This new 450,000 sf Congress Avenue Medical building stands as the beacon of the Yale Medical School’s commitment to fund a minimum of $500 Million Dollars on facilities over the next ten years. NER was awarded the $10 Million Dollar contract to provide the complete exterior veneer system and access including 560,000 brick, 10,000 pieces of veneer stone, reinforced concrete masonry unit back up, cavity insulation and air/vapor membrane. The cavity membrane, which is part of the new code in Massachusetts and being considered in other parts of the country, was installed as part of the complete masonry package eliminating the problems of coordination with other trades. The masonry for this fast track project was substantially completed in eleven months with innovations such as stainless steel through-wall flashing fully wrapped around the steel relief angles and the air/vapor barrier connection to the previously installed windows being refined in the process. Vineyard Red Sandstone, Impala Granite and three different types of brick work together to create the exterior beauty of this monumental structure.
