The Ford Piquette Plant is the birthplace of the Model T and is currently being renovated by Grunwell-Cashero Co in preparation for the monumental Centennial Celebration. Constructed in 1904, the building is of significant historical importance and is recognized as a National Historic Landmark.
Over the years the brick façade had been coated with white paint. A portion of the project scope is to remove the paint from the brick and repoint all of the mortar joints at the main entrance elevation.
Due to the age and condition of the brick units a lime putty mortar with a low p.s.i is being used for repointing. Deteriorated brick units are being replaced throughout the façade along with wood window restoration, painting and the construction of a new front entrance
