Fort Lee, NJ

The Colony apartment building (500 units) required extensive exterior façade repairs due to water infiltration problems and spalling concrete. O&S Associates implemented the exterior façade and parking garage renovation project and supervised the work on a full-time basis over two years (1999 and 2000). The total cost of the façade repair work was about $2.7 million.
