Key CSI Projects Involving Building Facades

Ft. Zachary Taylor (HISTORICAL MASONRY)

Owner:       State of FL Department of Environmental Protection

Location:   Key West, FL

Engineer/Architect:  Bender & Associates

CSI was contracted to perform the Historical Masonry Restoration of the Barracks Building at Fort Zachary Taylor in Key West, Florida.

Since the facility is one of the seven National Historic Sites located in the State of Florida, there was a heightened sensitivity for the restoration work. For example, the contractor was required to remove all brick and mortar by hand, as the use of mechanical equipment was not allowed.

The Scope of Work included but was not limited to:

100 % percent re-pointing of the brick façade

Removal and replacement of localized deteriorated brick

Large infill and rebuilding areas of brick

Recreating window and door openings

Resetting granite lintels

This project was completed on-budget, several months ahead of schedule.
