Saline County Housing Authority Blackman Hi-Rise

Architechniques, Ltd. provided full architectural services to the Saline County Housing Authority for their Capiral Fund Program IL06P043501-11. This project encompasses repairs to various facade elements and replacement of windows at the Blackman Hi-Rise in Harrisburg, Illinois. The existing façade on the lower level was cast in place concrete columns with concrete panel infill. These panels have become a maintenance problem. New fibercement siding and cast stone has been designed to provide easier maintenance and a more humane scale to this level of the building. There are also severl areas of existing glazing which are being removed and infilled. The storefront system on the south wall of the lower level is being removed and replaced with a more secure and more functional storefront system. The existing glazed curtainwall at the stairs is being replaced with a built wall system. The facade of this new built wall will match the facade of the lower level carrying the design vertically up the building. The windows in the elevator tower are being replaced. The EIFS at the elevator tower is being cleaned and painted to match the color of the new siding. The plaster soffit is also being covered with an EIFS soffit to minimize maintenance. In addition to these facade repairs, 2 small storage and file rooms have been added to the area under the northern overhang allowing the Housing Authority better use of the spaces.
