Francis Quad Column Conservation

In 1892, a fire consumed Academic Hall, leaving only six columns standing.  Over 125 years later our team was directed to conserve the columns without affecting its visual historic character.  Utilizing non-conventional techniques such as laser scanning and surgical bone screws, the structural stability of the columns was restored.
