2013 Cast Stone Institute Excellence Award Winner - Restoration

This cast stone restoration project at the University of Connecticut encompasses replacement of the existing ornate elements including the detailed turrets, dentil cornices, surrounds, crockets, rosettes, panels, quoins, coping, medallions and bands. Original deteriorated elements were removed from the building and sent to Sun Precast where the fine details of the elements were carefully restored by our in-house craftsmen. New cast stone was fabricated using a custom mix design to match the original finish. The restored cast stone was meticulously set by the expert craftsmen of G.L. Capasso Inc.
