Key CSI Projects Involving Building Facades

F.A. Thayer Courthouse (HISTORICAL MASONRY)

Owner:       Garrett County

Location:   Oakland, MD

Engineer/Architect:  N/A

CSI was awarded the contract for the exterior restoration of F.A. Thayer Courthouse in Oakland, MD.

The project scope included 100% re-pointing of the ornate brick rotunda that rises high above the courthouse as well as the complete restoration of the buildings main chimney.

This was a challenge because the kiln that had created the original bricks went out of business 30 years ago - so finding the appropriate matching bricks became a top priority for CSI's Maryland/DC and Boston-area locations.

On the plaza level, CSI performed spot sealant work and repointing around the windows and various other sections. CSI teams also installed through-wall flashing to eliminate the critical condition of water intrusion into the detention center.

Working closely with Garrett County officials, CSI restored the historic building to its original beauty. CSI searched throughout the East Coast to find the perfect matching brick to beautifully restore the ornate brick rotunda and main chimney.

CSI also provided value engineering for this project.

Throughout the project, the CSI team took great care to ensure minimal noise or disruption, enabling the busy working courthouse and detention center to continue service without interruption.
