Field Surveys & Site Dimensions

Field surveys and site dimensions are critical on restoration projects and often in new construction.

  • Obtain dimensions, profiles & architectural details to match existing
  • Site conditions determine depth requirements of new stone
  • Site conditions identify constraints, notches, ‘fit around’ issues
  • Structural backup conditions determine anchorage design
  • Site conditions identify coordination issues with other materials
