Featured Project

For many centuries, Hindu temples have been designed and constructed with the techniques outlined in the Shipla Shastras texts. Unlike other similar Hindu temples, cracks were observed on the exterior marble beams which could affect structural integrity of the porticos. Walker was retained to investigate the cause of the cracks.
