San Francisco’s Monadnock Building, designed by Frederick H. Meyer, is famous for surviving both the Great San Francisco Earthquake and Fire in 1906 when it was partially constructed, and two separate attempts by the U.S. Army to destroy it with dynamite. Today, this historic building is undergoing restorative repointing using NHL 3.5.
NHL 3.5 was used for repointing the brickwork on Fire Station #44 in San Francisco, California.

The Officers’ Club is one of San Francisco’s oldest buildings and was part of the original Spanish Presidio constructed in the late eighteenth century. It is undergoing a comprehensive historic rehabilitation that will return the beloved icon to its former grandeur. Saint Astier® Natural Hydraulic Lime mortars are used for stone setting as well as plastering on the original adobe walls.
