New Capitals for 250 Delaware Avenue Combine Old and New Fabrication Techniques

Making components such as the pier capitals on the facade of the old Delaware Court Building shows the combination of old and new techniques involved in making highly detailed ornamental pieces. These, and many other intricate components involved in the replication of units for 250 Delaware Avenue have to be carefully and precisely detailed.

The process begins with taking a scan of the facade and then using that to make a CNC base file which will be used to create the plaster model and eventually, the mold.
