Nigerian Embassy

This project consists of 27,000 sqft of French limestone wall cladding, and 5,000 sqft of interior lobby flooring. The project bid was a design-assist to allow the successful subcontractor to propose stone materials types, installation methods, and scaffold and access methods. Rugo was successful in guiding the design group in the selection of the French limestone, and it’s low-stress stone anchorage system.

Rugo employed mast climber scaffolds for the entire perimeter to allow for staging of the stone crates on the platforms, to allow for an efficient method of attachment to the building structure. Rugo designed the flashing and blue Skin membranes to create a watertight barrier.

This project is an excellent example of Rugo’s ability to source competitive stone types structurally adequate for their use, and to install a blended facade in an esthetically pleasing fashion.
