Jordan Tower II is a nine story Hi-Rise housing people of Red Wing, MN. This structure was built in 1974 with post-tension cables and concrete making up the frame of the building.
Jordan Tower II involved three phases. The first phase was replacing deteriorated post-tension anchors in the 1st floor – a total of 13 required replacement. This affected the cafeteria and one living unit which had to be closed for two weeks. If not being closed the length of this phase would have been four weeks total. Phase two consisted of replacing 77 deteriorated post-tensioned anchors in a total of 7 balcony floors. Each balcony was required to be shored two levels below. The shoring was strategically placed where residents would not be required to leave their units. Each balcony took approximately two weeks to complete. Phase three was investigating and documenting the condition of exterior grout pockets at the end of the post-tensioned cables. Once investigation was complete a new precast grout pocket was installed and all concrete surfaces were coated with two coats of an elastomeric coating to protect the grout pocket and give the exterior building a facelift. Led by Adam Mudgett and David Griswold the execution of this project required 8 worker working simultaneously in all three phases for four months.
