The Lillian and Amy Goldman Stone Mill was restored with the generous support of The Lillian Goldman Charitable Trust and The Amy P. Goldman Foundation.The restoration maintains the Stone Mill’s mid-19th-century industrial character on the exterior and, in the three-floor interior, equips the landmark with modern building systems to create a LEED-certified structure that meets the Silver standard. (LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.)

Duraamen products were used in the restoration of this 1840 NYC landmark. In the ground floor, after the fresh concrete was poured wood inlays were installed. The wood inlays were filled with self leveling concrete, Param 5500. The thickness of this pour was about 2 inches. After allowing the self leveling concrete to cure over night, two coats of micro-topping Skraffino was applied. The reason for using the micro-topping was to give the surface a hand troweled concrete finish. The micro topping was integrally colored with Colorfast colors.

The Lillian and Amy Goldman Stone Mill provides office space for Garden curators and is available through Abigail Kirsch Catering Relationships for events such as weddings and parties. For long term performance of the floor, one coat of Perdure E02, 100% solids epoxy primer, one coat of 100% solids epoxy body coat, Perdure E12 and two coats of water based matte polyurethane, Perdure U45 was used.

Don’t miss a rare chance to take behind-the-scenes tours of The Lillian and Amy Goldman Stone Mill—the newly restored New York City and National Historic Landmark—as well as the surrounding gardens and collections. In collaboration with The New York Landmarks Conservancy, take a guided tour and more on September 18-19, 2010.
