The Ministry building adjacent to the Parliament was historically significant and needed to undergo restoration as the substrate was failing and the exterior façade was being held in place with surface fasteners. The goal was to maintain the Greenland marble on the exterior but replacing it with newly mined material was not an option as the quarry was closed in the 1920s.
The existing Greenland marble was removed from the exterior and shipped to Texas where it was fabricated into StoneLite® panels. Lightweight stone plugs were manufactured to insert into the holes created by the surface fasteners. Some corner panels required a fixed curved and were fabricated to a radius of 11’-1” and 7’-9”.
