The scope of work for this transportation project involved the caulking and sealing of several control joints and seismic joints with some minor caulking around existing light fixtures. Heroica Construction prepared for this unique type of work by becoming certified installers by the manufacturer of “Emseal Seismic Joints.”


All of the project work took place at the RIPTA transportation building and offices on Melrose Street in Providence. In total, there were eight vertical seismic joints approximately 27′ high and several smaller 1/2″ vertical control joints 27′ high. The Heroica Construction team also provided caulking around doors, windows, and utility penetrations for additional weatherization. The final scope of work required power washing and waterproofing the exterior masonry walls of the one story administration building.

All of the caulking, sealant, and waterproofing work was self-performed by Heroica certified employees.
