Key CSI Projects Involving Building Facades

Fogg Public Library (HISTORICAL MASONRY)

Owner:       Town of Weymouth, MA

Location:   Weymouth, MA

Engineer/Architect:  McKinnell McKinnell & Taylor, Inc.

**This project was AWARDED PROJECT of the YEAR 2011 by ICRI-New England Chapter**

Built in 1897, the Fogg Public Library in Weymouth, MA is a 19th century landmark listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The first public library to be built in Weymouth, it was commissioned by John S. Fogg, a boot and shoe manufacturer and banker in South Weymouth, MA who initially funded its erection.

The library's exterior stone façade is constructed with Weymouth granite, and the architecture includes a mix of Dutch and classical elements. According to the town's website, the Fogg Library is a defining element of Weymouth's architectural heritage.

Weather conditions over the last hundred years had taken their toll and eroded some of the exterior masonry and stonework.

The CSI team completely repaired and repointed the exterior masonry at all elevations. The team also installed all new copper flashing and gutters and made final tie-ins to the roofing system.

Through close coordination with the project's general contractor and subcontractors, the team successfully completed this project on-time and on-budget.
