Please Touch Museum Dome and Floor Restoration

While Memorial Hall was restored and renovated in 2008 for the Please Touch Museum, further restoration efforts were needed nine years later. The Dome leaked and previous fixes were not successful while the Marble Floor had begun to crack and deteriorate. Through investigation and collaboration, NorthStar and the project team conceived an innovative solution for the Dome and successfully tested if for two years. To begin restoration efforts of the Marble Floor, NorthStar exhausted all resources to find marble that matched the existing tile from a quarry closed years ago. After successful identification of an appropriate replacement tile, the project is moving forward.
