Chris Norfleet - St. Bart's Dome Restoration
Sep 24, 2017 |
Our iconic dome has been magnificently restored! On September 24th, Project Manager Chris Norfleet of Séamus Henchy & Associates spoke about how they executed this complicated work -- finishing on time and on budget. After 14 months behind scaffolding, a crown jewel of midtown has been revealed once again with a brilliant regilded cross, 6,400 new terra cotta tiles restoring the dome’s original bright coloration, and multiple layers of waterproofing and additional stability measures to protect the dome for many years to come.
