Built in 1909 in the heart of Boston College, Gasson Hall had developed problems with its aging masonry: cracks, chipping of the cast stone, crumbling mortar and general wear and tear had degraded the structure and its appearance.
This century building needed major restoration, planned over six years, starting with disassembly, piece by piece, of the top of the tower and followed by reconstruction of the spires.
More than 3 000 pieces were removed from the building, identified, designed, then sent to the BPDL plant. New wet cast concrete components were fabricated to the highest quality standards and sent back to the jobsite for installation. The restoration of Gasson Hall was one of the largest restoration projects in North America.
