Allana Buick & Bers, Inc. (ABBAE) was retained by the J. Paul Getty Trust (The Getty Center) to provide consulting services for leak remediation to their complex.
The Getty Center is a cultural complex dedicated to visual arts and humanities. The expansion opened in 1997 and consists of six interconnected buildings, terraces, courtyards and gardens. There is an Auditorium, North Building, East Building, Food Services Building, Getty Research Institute and the Museum. The buildings range in height from two to four stories.
ABBAE was retained by the J. Paul Getty Trust to assist in analyzing and resolving long standing building enclosure leaks. ABBAE was tasked with analyzing prior building enclosure leak investigations and reporting then developing a concise investigative and remedial repair approach. The approach needed to balance the need to protect priceless artwork, public access, ongoing operations and the need to preserve an architectural monument.
