The 527-foot-tall Travelers Tower was the tallest tower in New England when it was completed in 1919. The tower has since been surpassed several times by modern skyscrapers but remains a Hartford, CT landmark symbolizing the city’s reign as America’s insurance capital. In 2011, a need for extensive repairs for the building was discovered which resulted in a $30 million renovation project. The makeover included cleaning the exterior granite, replacing over 30 miles of mortar between the stones, restoring decorative molding and upgrading the light tower.
With access to the industry’s leading products and a deep understanding of the restoration and repair industry, Kenseal Construction Products was a sound choice to supply specialty construction materials for the project. The Kenseal team delivered truckloads of Laticrete 254 Platinum thin-set mortar and Laticrete 3701 Fortified Mortar Bed to the job site for a valued customer throughout the project. The partnership resulted in another successful project that Kenseal was proud to be part of.
