Key CSI Projects Involving Building Facades

8 Plympton Street, Harvard University

Owner:       Harvard University

Location:   Cambridge, MA

Engineer/Architect:  Gale Associates

Located at Harvard University, 8 Plympton St. serves as student accommodation and as the home for the renowned Harvard Book Store. CSI was awarded the contract to restore the deteriorated masonry at the South façade of the building and to install new copper flashing and detailing to help preserve the long term waterproof integrity of the building. The historical nature of the building required extensive mortar sampling and matching to preserve the original intent of the design, and great care was taken to preserve and protect the unique architectural features of the façade.

CSI completed the project on budget and schedule and with minimal impact to the residents and businesses of the building and their operations. (BR>
