Project Profile:

Cummins Engine

Project Summary

Ritterings was 3” PVC pipe glued onto netting for this job and we have old historical photos that the contractor took and can compare the new photos. The offices are positioned on the site in a triangular fashion, built around a historical tower structure around which was built a cafeteria. Then offices were located in the tower. The present appearance has vines growing all over the lower offices and it looks very forest-like – what a difference from the photos we have from 1988. Note that the thatch was probably 3” thick from where the grass sod had been originally placed, as shown by the level of the manhole.
