Project Description

It was once a field where cattle roamed but someone had a vision. It was driven by the desire to give the youth of their community the opportunity for a higher education at home. The architect took that empty field and started a beautiful campus.

Natural stone reaching to the sky is the drawing center to this campus. He turns a mechanical yard into a pleasant sight by taking splitface block and burnish block to form a decorative wall. Then came the brick mixing and blending with the other masonry products. The architect chose to use Flemish bond and several different patterns above the windows. These products were designed to blend together in an artistic manner. Maintenance cost is low and the beauty is strong. It is old masonry with a modern design!

What was once a cow field is now an inviting college campus. Masonry was the right choice to produce a friendly campus for higher learning.

Date of Project Completion: October 2013
