Have you ever been inside the Pastore Federal Building in Providence, RI? Completed in May of 1940, this historic building houses a post office in addition to being a courthouse.
Two months ago, Boston Stone Restoration was contacted by a contractor working on the lobby renovation that had run into a small problem. The goal of the renovation was to restore the damage done to the floor where security machinery had been removed and match it to its original finish. The floor of the Pastore Federal Building is comprised of Tennessee Pink, a pinkish-gray limestone found only in East Tennessee. This stone is a favorite amongst architects and builders for its color, however it can only be sourced directly from the quarry in Tennessee. Our team went down to determine the size and exact shade of the stone we needed and ordered the replacement pieces. Once the stone had been procured, we teamed up with Stephen Little of Portland Stone Restoration to wet-cut the stone on site to make sure each piece was a perfect fit.
Once the pieces were set in the floor and repaired, our team went in to give the floor a good polish to show off the stone. The best part of this job was that it was all completed after hours! No business was disrupted in this bustling downtown building and we can do the same for you!
