Natural Stone Renovation Project
John Hopkins University, Krieger Hall Colonnade Restoration

This existing collonade of Vermont marble columns, steps, paving, and the cornice was suffering from water damage and roof leaks. Rugo was contracted to catalog the pieces, carefully dismantle the stone, clean, patch, and restore, and re-erect everything the same location.

Rugo provided the rigging, scaffolding, new stone, new copper flashing, dutchmen repairs, and overall cleaning of the stone to remove biologic and metal staining. This project is an excellent example of Rugo’s experience in genuine conservation and restoration of historic stone.
