Whig & Clio Halls

Joseph B. Callaghan, Inc. has designed custom bracing systems for numerous projects to facilitate restoration work. For Princeton University’s Whig and Clio Halls, the firm devised a shorting system to support a 140-ton pediment and entablature in addition to six marble columns, each weighing twelve tons. Our custom-designed ring clamp secured the columns to be temporarily suspended as the concrete entrance slab was replaced along with the marble plynth blocks.
