Flashing repairs to brick veneer

This 10 storey concrete and steel condo building was having some major remediation work done to the brick veneer. I suppose moisture was getting in behind the brick and oozing out around the windows maybe?

I was able to get a few closeup shots by sticking my camera out a window.

The contractor cut out 2 rows of brick at each floor level, installed some flashing and then replaced the bricks with weep holes. Temporary screw jacks were used to support the brick.

...just curious, did that remedy come from a designer or the contractor or an inspector?

My guess is a condo dweller found a stain and it escalated from there. But the underlying problem would have been no weepholes in the initial build.

I wonder if a different contractor would have simply drilled some weepholes? Nah, that wouldn't do. [:)]
