The SSRG masonry crew has nearly completed the brick facade for a new Graeter’s location in Cherry Grove in Anderson Township. The work is part of comprehensive renovations  to this flagship location to improve the site, and add new amenities.
The masonry  part of the project is being completed in two phases. Phase I is the addition next to the existing facility, and Phase II is where the existing facility was demolished.
The work began in November 2018 as crews built a concrete block firewall between Phase I and Phase II. Then, the exterior of Phase I started January 2019, with phase II following in March 2019. Throughout the project, SSRG maintained a crew of 4-5 people on site who install an average of approximately 500 brick per day, and 60 pieces of cast stone. The building required a total of 43,000 face brick, and 900 pieces of Arriscraft Cast Stone. An architectural feature is a curved masonry seat wall at the front entrance, surrounding outdoor patio seating.
The crew is only a few weeks away from completion on both exterior facade  Phases, with all the additional new amenities set to open later in 2019.
