Description

Phase I of this project provided for the rehabilitation of the flooring system in the Red Brick Courthouse at 29 Courthouse Square in Rockville. The structural integrity of the flooring system was weakened by modifications made over the years to accommodate various electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems. Phase II will provide for a limited historic rehabilitation of the Courthouse and preserve the building exterior. Work will include the replacement of Life Safety systems, modifications to make the facility compliant with the requirements for the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), repair for moisture infiltration issues, and repair and replacement of the building exterior, masonry, copper fittings, and roofing. All work will be performed in compliance with requirements and oversight of the Maryland Historical Society and per existing County regulation and easements.

Justification

For Phase I, a structural engineer determined that some areas of the terra cotta arch and beam flooring system have been compromised by modifications that have been made for various electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems. Access to certain areas on the first and second floors will be restricted until the problem is resolved. Phase II is the historic renovation of the building, which dates back to the 1800's. In 1995, the Courthouse had a small renovation to upgrade the HVAC and to provide an elevator. Currently, the slate roofing is deteriorating, as is the copper metal roofing on the steeple (both of which have reached the end of service life). The masonry joints need to be tuck-pointed on the exterior walls and parapets. This deterioration has allowed moisture infiltration, which has damaged the building, with repair efforts slowing but not stopping the problems. Along with accessibility issues, the HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems are at the end of useful life. The fire prevention systems require redesign and installation to provide for better safeguards to prevent potential loss of the historic wood structure.
