Inspecting & Numbering Limestone

CHICAGO, IL – Engineers from Simpson Gumpertz & Heger (SGH) were on site at the Shrine inspecting and numbering the limestone pieces that were removed right after the fire. These pieces will go back on the building like larger puzzle pieces. The pieces were removed right after the fire due to the unsafe structure underneath the southwest corner of the building. Masonry work this Fall has been building back this corner and the stone will be put back into place.
