MIT’s Main Group Buildings, dedicated in 1916, include Building 10 with its prominent limestone- and copper-clad Great Dome. SGH investigated leakage into the Barker Library below the Great Dome and developed a durable repair solution commiserate with the original design aesthetic. We also led a multidisciplinary team for the restoration of the oculus skylight and the Barker Reading Room.
