Key CSI Projects Involving Building Facades

Tufts University-Eaton Hall (HISTORICAL)

Owner:       Tufts University

Location:   Medford, MA

Engineer/Architect:  McGinley Kalsow & Associates LLP
General Contractor: Barr & Barr, Inc.

Eaton Hall was originally built in 1905 and the exterior façade is primarily constructed of marble and brick. In 1950 Tufts built an addition to the original 1905 building, and during this construction the deteriorated marble surrounds at the sills and jambs at all windows were removed and replaced with brick masonry.

CSI was contracted by Tufts University during the summer of 2008 to restore the façade of Eaton Hall to match its original 1905 construction.

The restoration of the marble included replacing damaged and cracked marble stones, installing marble dutchman at cornice dental units, rebuilding marble balusters, dismantling and rebuilding marble entry check walls and steps, chemically cleaning all brick masonry and marble and the installation of new marble surrounds at the window jambs and sill to match the existing construction. Finally several applications of a marble consolidate was applied to all the marble surfaces to help preserve the soft and sugaring effect of the 1905 marble.

Also included in CSI's work scope was site work for new underground utilities, new paving and new conduit as light poles were secured on top of rebuilt marble walls.
