Stone & Lime Historic Restoration Services was contracted to repair portions of the brick masonry scarp wall along Front 3 at Fort Jefferson. The scarp wall masonry was severely deteriorated and, in many areas, had collapsed into the moat due to the corrosion and expansion of internal iron elements. The scope of work included the removal of iron components of the historic Totten shutter assembly; partial reconstruction of the shutter assembly using cast concrete replacement components; reconstruction of the embrasure openings; and the repair and repointing of the scarp wall using natural cement, from the magistral line to the top of the string course.
