The Barnes Museum

The Barnes Museum opened in May of 2012 and many Local 1 members worked on this project. The exterior walls were made of fossilized Isralei Limestone called Ramon Grey. It was cut and finished in the West Bank by an Israeli/Plestniaian consortium. The flooring material was Limestone, imported from Germany. Cast-in-place concrete treated by sand blasting makes up the Pavilion and lower level of the building to express the weight and permanence in regard to the contents of the building. The general contractor is L.F. Driscoll and signatory masonry contractor is D.M. Sabia & Co.
