Restoration of Jefferson Memorial Begins
WASHINGTON – The National Park Service has begun a 15-month project to restore the roofs, repair the stone, and clean the marble at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial. The memorial will remain open for the duration of the project, although some areas will be inaccessible. BCA is the masonry conservation consultant for the roof replacement project at the Jefferson Memorial that is just getting underway. Working with a team of design professionals and the NPS, BCA has been assessing the condition of the Memorial's stone portico and colonnade, including the massive marble portico roof tiles, and developing appropriate repairs. BCA will continue to be involved with the masonry roof replacement and cleaning throughout construction.
