CHALLENGE

Flexibility in advance scheduling is essential when providing exterior maintenance needs for schools. For nearly 10 years Valcourt has worked with Stone Ridge to perform exterior maintenance covering a wide range of waterproofing and restoration services. Work takes place in July and August after the school year is over, which requires partnering with Stone Ridge in January or February to identify repair work for the summer months and establish budgets.

Stone Ridge, a private, all girls’ school, consists of 12 buildings and more than 200,000 square feet. The oldest building was constructed in 1906. There are a wide variety of façade elements including stucco, masonry, concrete,
and historic masonry.

SOLUTION

Building on a multi-year relationship, Valcourt and Stone Ridge partnered together to develop an integrated plan establishing delivery schedules that fit the school’s needs during the summer months. As an experienced provider, Valcourt understands the unique challenges of working with schools: pinpoint scheduling, real time communication, and tight execution. To ensure that the client was kept well informed, Valcourt’s onsite manager provided real time communication of project
status, process, and procedures. By deploying multiple crews over a concentrated period of time, Valcourt completed all

the varying scopes of project work in an efficient, high quality manner—on time and on budget.

Valcourt appreciates Stone Ridge’s continued trust and looks forward to working with them again in the future to meet their special exterior maintenance needs.

“Valcourt’s help throughout the process from bid to completion was outstanding. As always, their performance was nothing but first class. Valcourt’s expertise in this area is obvious. It’s always good to have a single-source company that provides a host of building services and resources to call on when the need arises.”
