This Seattle historic preservation Project is completed. Successfully working with other Seattle historic masonry general contractors because of the unusual scope and size of project. This project was done for Martin Selig and under Lease Crutcher Lewis as the general contractor. We removed and reinstalled the large granite panels in the entry of the new building. This project consisted of adding additional stories onto the top of the existing building, so the historic granite, marble, and limestone had to be removed reinforced and reinstalled after the additional stories were added to the building. The stones were removed, mapped for storage and re-installment and also while off the building, they were graded for damage, restored and a fiber mesh product was applied for strength for reinstall. .
This Project included removing large granite and sand stone cladding from interior and exterior walls of the building and crating for transport. These stones are 56 inches by 56 inches and weigh an average of 400 pounds each. We used state of the art machinery and hoist systems to strategically remove the large stones without further damage. We then hauled the stones to an offsite storage facility where they were fixed with fiber backing and then reinstalled after the new building is constructed.
