John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Upper South Terrace

Rugo Stone was contracted to furnish and install this huge stone-paved plaza, which connects the new Reach structures to the original Performing Arts Center.

This project is an excellent example of Rugo’s ability to procure a vast amount of 3″ paving and install the paving in an exact location, maintaining all the various site grades required to shed the water runoff.

Rugo used an inventive stone lifting system to ensure the installation of these heavy pavers was safe and efficient. The project was performed ahead of schedule and with zero lost-time accidents.
