|Original Stonework of Historic “Hidden Treasure” in Syracuse Restored by Lupini Construction, Inc.|
As part of a large roadway reconstruction project on Erie Boulevard West in Syracuse, NY, Lupini Construction was hired as the historic stonework restoration specialist to perform major restoration to a large stone façade which was built as part of the Erie Canal project in the early 1800’s.
Lupini’s stone masons meticulously catalogued and disassembled the majority of façade stones which make up the stone wall and arches that support the wall and roadway. Together with the project’s engineers, Lupini Construction inspected and developed major and minor repairs to the existing stones that could be reused. Stones which were deemed beyond repair were replaced with new stones to match in stone type and appearance. The large façade stones, some of them weighing more than a ton, were reinstalled to match the original coursing pattern. Lupini’s tradesmen also completed crack repair, injection grouting and repointing through the tunnels.
