Historic 1815 foundation restored in Downtown Stowe

Parker Construction repaired the foundation on an 1815 building on Main Street in Downtown Stowe.  The building is being restored and renovated for commercial space, and had a crumbling stone foundation.  Parker Construction jacked up the entire building, removed rotten sills, reinforced the stone foundation, installed new support posts and beams, and poured a new concrete slab to finish the basement.  Giving new life and support to old buildings, all in a month’s work!

Check out how Gunite is applied, using pressurized air and water to create a super strong, monolithic concrete form.
