Cleaning Testing and Implementation

• Cleaning testing on various marbles

• Implementation of successful material and method with ICC

This project was design-build for ICR and ICC. ICR tested several proprietary products on the various marbles present in the Central Hall of the McKim building. The most compatible material and method were selected for full-scale implementation. With ICC, protection was designed and installed for specific features in the room and scaffold was erected. ICR and ICC implemented a product that is a spray-applied latex which was peeled from the marble surface once dry.
