John Lambert Jr., Stone Restoration of America
The Historic Johnston Building - Restoring History

This 17-story skyscraper in downtown Charlotte, NC was constructed in 1924 and includes the original masonry and limestone façade. Originally 15 stories tall, two more were added in 1927. The existing parapet wall on all four sides is failing and needs to be completely demolished and re-built. The remaining façade also needs maintenance repairs including patching, tuck-pointing, underpinning, and cleaning. Come find out what exciting surprises a 96 year old office building has in store! 

John will record a video from the project site and headquarters will send the video out to attendees one week prior to the virtual roundup. Then during the event, John would give a synopsis on the project and do a Q&A session.
