Wheaton College Selects Ledgestone Boston Blend Building Veneer for New Science Center

Local, natural stone stays in line with Wheaton's commitment to environmental sustainability.

A new science center is under construction at the Norton, MA school Wheaton College. What began in April 2010 is coming to an end and the final bells and whistles are being installed. This includes some amazing freestanding stonewalls that were made using the Boston Blend Ledgestone full thickness Building Veneer.

Approximately 2,000 square feet of stone was purchased and used throughout the landscape. This local stone was sorted and split right here in Littleton, MA. Why is this so important? It keeps in line with "green" building and enables the building to earn LEED certification credits.

This $42 Million dollar project is set for completion in Fall 2011. 

Check back soon to see pictures of the final project. Can’t wait and want to see the progress? Take a look at the construction web cam feed! It has pictures and a time-lapse video of the project.
