The MIT Main Group Buildings (MMGB) are comprised of eleven limestone and brick–clad interconnected buildings that represent the image of MIT.  Built between 1913 and 1937, the MMGB are generally concrete-framed structures with transitional masonry exterior walls.  MIT monitored, maintained, and repaired elements of the building until the 1990s, when they began planning to restore the MMGB using a phased approach over a multiyear time frame.
