& Historic Restoration Experience
Soldiers' & Sailors' Monument
Restoration of this famous structure required superior
planning and care, not least because we had to demolish the entire
plaza around the Monument without disturbing the structure itself.
Surprises were many. For instance, after finding the
limestone plaza steps were each uniquely cut to fit in a single
location, we removed them one by one, surveying each point of support,
so they could be stored and later reinstalled exactly as first laid.
And when no subcontractor would undertake the replication
of the historic stairway inside the Monument, we bought equipment
for our own metal shop and did the work ourselves.
