Key CSI Projects Involving Building Facades

Boston Globe Building-Front Entrance

Owner:       The Boston Globe

Location:   100 Morrissey Blvd, Boston MA

Engineer/Architect:  N/A

CSI was awarded the contract to restore the polished granite front entrance stairs and access ramp at the main offices and printing facilities for the prestigious Boston Globe newspaper.

The polished granite treads and risers had suffered considerable deterioration as had the polished granite tiles on planters encompassing the stairs. Many of the tiles were cracked and broken and some had come loose and fallen off. The stairs were suffering substantial water intrusion due to the open joints and cracks and were in danger of further deterioration.

CSI re-pointed all of the stairs and installed sealant at all expansion joints. All broken and cracked granite tiles were removed and replaced with new tiles and the stairs were cleaned of all stains and effervescence.
