Petersen House (HISTORICAL MASONRY)

Owner:       National Park Service

Location:   Washington, DC

Engineer/Architect:  Oehrlein Associates & Architects

The Petersen House in Washington, DC is the historic site where President Abraham Lincoln died in April 1865, just nine hours after he was shot across the street at the Ford Theatre. The building is now owned by the U.S. National Park Service (NPS) and preserved as a museum.

> Isolated repointing, removal & replacement of brick

> Façade cleaning

> Restoration/resetting of brownstone steps, Dutchman repairs

> Application of mineral coating to exterior masonry surfaces and penciling-in of mortar joints

> Removal and resetting of brick pavers

CSI was also asked to perform additional work to correct latent deficiencies uncovered during the construction process.

This richly-historic and aesthetically significant project was greatly influenced and monitored by the architectural community. The CSI Team took delicate care in preserving the buildings historic fabric and successfully provided a functional repair and restoration solution.
