Farwell Building Consulting

CTLGroup evaluated the deteriorated existing stone cladding for reuse on a new building located on Michigan Avenue. Our scope of testing included absorbency, bending, flexural, and compression strength, as well as modulus of rupture. CTLGroup provided the owner and project architect with stone selection criteria for replacement stone once the existing stone was shown to have been significantly deteriorated due to repeated freeze thaw degradation.
