Idlewild Stablization & Treatment Plan

Fredericksburg, VA

Idlewild, an excellent example of Gothic-revival architecture, was devastated by fire in 2003. SWSG preformed a structural analysis of the ruin, prepared stabilization plans, and managed the stabilization construction. A treatment plan was developed to guide future restoration or adaptive re-use rehabilitation.

Mount Air Ruins

Lorton, VA

In an effort to stabilize the basement brick masonry, which includes an excellent example of a chimney relieving arch with cellar storage shelving, structural engineers devised a stabilization plan using timber cribbing. This ingenious stabilization method did not require intrusion into historic materials and is reversible.
