The exterior of Sarah Johnson Redlich '82 Hall of Science will
feature Arriscraft manufactured stone. This company in Cambridge,
Ontario, makes in 12 hours what Mother Nature takes millions of
years to do. Pulverized silica sand and limestone are mixed, with
oxides sometimes added for color, and pressed in a mold at about
1000 tons of pressure. The block can then be fractured into 4
or 5 uniform sizes. The blocks are pressure-cooked at 400 PSI
of steam for 10 to 12 hours and once cooled, the result is stone
uniform in size and can be more easily masoned than quarried irregular
stone products, allowing for less waste. The manufactured stone
is more stable in absorption of water as well.
