Lebanon VA Hospital

Cast Stone Institute 2016 RESTORATION EXCELLENCE Award Winner

This restoration project encompasses several elements of the main building at the Lebanon VA Hospital. The scope includes replacement of the existing ornate elements including the parapet coping, large urns, window surrounds, chimney caps, triangular pediment heads and detailed ornamental crest panel.

The role of Cast Stone was to replicate the original intricate elements, while matching the remaining Cast Stone that was not being replaced.

The replacement Cast Stone is a perfect replication of the original structure. The intricate architectural details were replicated using hand sculpting techniques to enhance the original details prior to casting with rubber and fiberglass molds. Cast Stone served to maintain the historical integrity of the project, and allowed for maintaining the fine architectural details of the building.

Comments from the Judges:
"Good job replicating the original materials"

"Ability to replicate and the diversity and amount of items replaced"
