2017 DCC Award Winner
Railroad Depot Staircase, Concrete Strategies
First Place: Architectural Cast-in-Place Concrete Structures / Under 5000 SF
Although greatly deteriorated, this staircase was placed on the National Historic Register in 1994. Concrete Strategies had to duplicate the original design of the Grand Staircase with only the measurements of the deteriorated structure to go by.
Great lengths had to be taken to create molds, assess the proper grade for each piece of the staircase, and deliver a product to match the original design. The project is hoped to be the catalyst to the restoration of the entire railroad depot. The judges were impressed with the care and intricacy of the efforts taken to duplicate the original details.
