Rehabilitation of (2) 250’ Radial Brick Chimneys

Although the 250' tall radial brick chimneys at the original Hersey Chocolate factory in Hersey, PA were no longer in service, the iconic structures are considered a valuable part of the Hersey Company's history and therefore they contracted Jansons Gibraltar to perform a comprehensive rehabilitation of the two chimneys.  Project highlights included:  

  • Extensive repointing of exterior mortar Joints
  • The removal and replacement of spalled and cracked brick
  • Reinforcing band installation
  • Installation of a New Chimney Cover
  • Upgrades to the Lightning Protection System
  • Cleaning the exterior surface of the masonry structures
