Cast Stone Rose Window Restoration

As a continuous arch, this large cast stone rose window was considered to be particularly vulnerable to seismic stress and was scheduled for restoration and reenforcement with a new anchoring system. After removal of its stained glass, the masonry was dismantled into its separate components and removed for restoration. The design required installation of a structural system of stainless steel reinforcement, embedded in epoxy resin. After the individual elements were restored and cleaned, they were re-installed over new stainless steel structural framework, and the stained glass replaced.
