Key CSI Projects Involving Building Facades

St. Gaudens National Historic Site Preservation

Owner:       National Park Service, U.S. Dept. of The Interior

Location:   Cornish, NH

Engineer/Architect:  Gale Associates

CSI teamed with Gale Associates Engineers to complete the exterior restoration of the East and West Elevations at Aspet, the historic home of sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens.

The focus of the project was to stop moisture intrusion into the second and third floors of the building. Masonry repairs were made to the brick structure, including rebuilding of one of the four chimneys, brick replacement as needed, and repointing.

In addition to masonry repairs, CSI was also contracted to remove the existing lead paint on areas of the structure involved with restoration.

Upon completion of repairs, the building was coated with a breathable coating system to prolong the life of this historic structure, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
