The first picture exemplifies how our team spends time prepping the surface for a clean and proper install.

TTEC Office Restoration
Worldwide digital software leader TTEC required repair and restoration of its Englewood, CO, global headquarters – constructed as a total precast office building with Wells Building Solutions (formally RMP) in 1999. In the almost quarter century since conception, the unique ringed architectural landmark lacked a robust building maintenance plan. Taking advantage of a relatively empty building during the COVID-19 pandemic, the company invested in fixing up the headquarters inside and out.
Structural Engineer S.A. Miro performed an analysis of needs and brought on Wells to establish the scope of restoration. The interior repairs were performed by The Weitz Company, with Wells’ Sealants and Restoration Team working simultaneously on the exterior.
Restoration of an existing building comes with unique challenges, and because TTEC is located adjacent to a highway, the building façade attracted dirt and pollution and was severely stained by irrigation over-spray. The Wells team washed the entire building and made cosmetic repairs, replaced joint caulking and, to help protect the building from future damage, applied a silane-siloxane water-resistant sealer – all while protecting the existing, mature landscaping. Due to the age of the building and the ever-changing supply of aggregate, the original stone mix was no longer available, so the Wells Sealants and Restoration team created a repair mix that inconspicuously matched the existing building.
Although long overdue for maintenance, the building remained structurally sound and showcases the resilience of concrete as a building material. Now that repairs have been completed and a preventative maintenance plan is in place, TTEC will have a durable and beautiful headquarters for years to come.
Concrete restoration — This shows how our team of experts was able to replicate the initial mix and seamlessly patch, matching the existing texturing.
Concrete restoration — When a car crashed into this wall, it required a comprehensive repair to seamlessly match the existing precast wall.
Precast wall panel crack repair — Our team is able to help remove the appearance of unsightly cracking by color matching the finish to make a seamless appearance.
Structural strengthening — Wells worked with this food manufacturing client to support as they upgraded facility mechanic systems on the roof. To support the increased roof load, we integrated Sika CarboDur S, a pultruded carbon fiber reinforced polymer laminate system that can strengthen concrete, timber and masonry structures.
Applied waterproofing — The Wells Sealants and Restoration team cleaned, repaired and recoated this dam face wall with applied waterproofing. Once cured it is safe for potable water.
Sheet waterproofing — Applying sheet waterproofing during new construction on a cast in place foundation wall.
Application of air barrier on wood — by installing spray-applied air barrier on new wood construction, it improved the resilience and long-term waterproofing of the structure.
