1025 Lakeside Avenue
The owners of 1025 Lakeside Ave. contacted ADCON due to problems they were experiencing as a result of water collecting within the backyard at the perimeter of the building. ADCON performed an inspection of the property to analyze this problem, and wrote a report documenting their findings. The report detailed the problems caused by this condition, and made recommendations describing what steps to take in order to correct the problems. A preliminary cost estimate based on these recommendations was also included in the report.
3435 Mt. Vernon Street
ADCON Consultants inspected and prepared a report for the owner of 3435 Mt. Vernon St. The inspection focused on repair work which had been performed on the road surface adjacent to the property. ADCON discovered that repair work performed by a Philadelphia Water Department subcontract at the site had been improperly performed. In addition ADCON found that the contractor had improperly resurfaced the road after making such repair work. In ADCON’s report conclusions were made which recommended that the Water Department return to the site, investigate, perform the repair work properly, and resurface the road again.

ADCON discovered several problems, such as incorrectly sized posts and beams, improperly installed bolts, a missing concrete footing, and several other problems. ADCON then made recommendations outlining what steps should be taken to fix the problem.

The contents of the drawings included structural and general modifications to the lower level (below ground), designs for a new staircase which included a means of egress from the lower level to the ground floor, designs for new retaining walls, a new sidewalk, and plumbing drawings for a new drain.
