Goodsell Observatory - Advanced Masonry Restoration project


Carleton College – Northfield, MN

Working at Carleton is always a challenge, because of the school time lines. The project started the third week in June and had to be completed by the last week in August. This building was built in 1887 and was the time keeper for all railroads west of the Mississippi until the end of WWII. Extra care had to be taken to keep all dust out of the building. Custom brick also had to be approved and installed in the short season. With all of the challenges AMR still brought the project in on time and on budget.
