Key CSI Projects for Educational Facilities

Memorial Hall - Harvard University

Owner:       Harvard University

Location:   Cambridge, MA

Engineer/Architect:  Gale Associates

Located at Harvard University, Memorial Hall, the south entrance to the building was in poor shape due to many years of neglect. The current condition of the entry was unsightly and presented trip hazards to the many students and faculty using the building.

CSI was awarded the contract to rehabilitate the stairs which included complete demolition of the existing stairs and foundation while salvaging the stair treads and pavers for re-use into the new design. Due to varying gauge thickness of the pavers and varying thickness of trades, the designed system of bedding the stone in neo-asphalt was not viable. The CSI team worked with the Owner and Engineer to develop an improved system of attaching the treads and pavers to the substrate which would also satisfy the design intent. Design delays did not deter the team from completing the project within the time constraints listed in the contract.
