Convergent Science Building Remodel

This existing building required remodeling to give it a fresh look for the new owner, Convergent Science.

The re-design included ARRIS.stack thin stone for both interior and exterior walls, including
accent piers adhered to new 6-inch block walls. On the exterior, existing split-scored block was
first filled in, then the Laticrete® air and water barrier installed, followed by Laticrete®’s high bond mortar, and, finally,
ARRIS.stack thin stone applied. The largest wall was completed in 2 days and was so strong that when the Hydro-Mobile caught on one of the
ARRIS.stack clad piers, while descending, the stone did not break or rip off the wall, but actually stopped the Hydro-Mobile from going down. This event illustrates the extraordinary strength of the ARRIS.stack and Latricrete® system.

The masonry installation was mostly done in very cold weather inside of tents and required 6,000 sq. ft. of flats and 1,000
linear feet of corners.
