This project consists of a reinforced C.M.U backup wall system, modular brick veneer, cast stone window surrounds, banding, caps and arches. The large cast stone arches at the entry was a challenge as each massive cast stone arch soffit was lifted into place, anchored to the structural steel and left suspended. Another challenge was the hoisting and anchoring of the large cast stone panels at the entry tower.
