FCA Tuckpoint Building

Project Type: Federal

Scope of Work: Historic Renovation

This project consisted of the historic renovation of the VAMC in Wichita, Kansas. The majority of work involved tuckpointing and re-pointing the the entire exterior of all of the hospital campus buildings. Before the new pointing of the masonry joints could begin, mortar and brick analyses of each building had to be performed to develop the new mortar mixes that match the historic mortar in both physical composition and appearance.

Other scopes of work incorporated within this project included the historic restoration of the original wood soffits around the building, lead paint stabilization and remediation, miscellaneous concrete work, new plastering and painting, metal fabrication’s for handrails and other decorative metals, limestone replacement, granite replacement, and restoration work to the existing copper leaders and downspouts.
