Work at the Parapets

CHICAGO, IL – Work continues at the parapets to reinforce the wall in preparation for the steel installation. The parapet walls over the north vestibule had five courses of existing brick removed and rebuilt with brick, block and bond beam to fortify the wall. Masonry ties were used to tie the new brick in with the existing brick.

South Wall Work Continued…

CHICAGO, IL – Last week at the Shrine, work was done on the South Wall at the altar. Below you will see photos of before, during, and after the work at the parapet.
