Project Overview

To stop the water infiltration that was causing damage to the building, bricks and tuck-pointing were removed and replaced in two areas of external wall at the back and side of the Lyric Theater building.

The damaged areas have now been stabilized and further erosion curtailed. Renovation of the rest of the building can now continue.
