Repairing an historic landmark

The Daytona Beach Bandshell has been a destination for concertgoers for nearly 80 years and is on the U.S. Register of Historic Places. But age can take its toll, especially since the venue is constructed of coquina stone, a sedimentary rock composed of fossilized seashells and coral. The porosity of this stone was one challenge that had to be overcome when an engineer specified epoxy resin injection to repair structural cracks found in the structure. This case study outlines the problem and how it was solved using a method called cross-stitching. This involves both epoxy injection and anchoring steel rods in place to stitch the structure back together.
