Limestone to be Removed and Remounted on Heritage Expansion


Sometimes you have to take a step back to move forward.

You may have noticed work on the outside of the heritage center expansion project has stalled.

All of the limestone panels on the new addition that have been put on the building have to be taken down and then reattached.

A check of the work found an issue with the way they were mounted to the building.

The panels are over eight-hundred pounds apiece and need to be anchored more securely.

"So it all came down to a safety factor that a new technique is going to be used that will stabilize the panels so there's no possibility of them popping off the building, says Claudia Berg of the State Historical Society of North Dakota.

The company hired to put up the limestone has been replaced.

A new company will begin taking down the panels in a couple of weeks. They hope to have all of the limestone back up by December.
