John Canning & Co.’s expertise in plaster repair and restoration was essential for the successful restoration and repair of Hulihe’e plaster-over-lava-rock construction.
John Canning & Co. restored plaster at the historic Hulihe’e Palace.
The Palace, the former vacation home of Hawaiian royalty, is completely constructed out of lava rock.
Now a cultural museum, it was severely damaged by an earthquake in 2006. This caused significant structural damage and cracking in the lava rock.
