Laticrete donates materials for disabled veterans pavilion

ST. CROIX, MN - Laticrete International, a global leader in the manufacturing of innovative systems for the installation of stone and tile, donated Latapoxy 310 Rapid Stone Adhesive and the Latapoxy 310 Cordless Mixer for a new open-air stone pavilion at the Disabled Veterans Camp on Big Marine Lake in Marine on St. Croix, MN. The Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Local Union 1 of Minnesota/ North Dakota volunteered their services and installed 18 columns with stone veneers and caps utilizing Latapoxy 310 Stone Adhesive in a rapid-setting format. The new 2,400-square-foot stone pavilion sits on the 75-acre Disabled Veterans Camp designed to provide facilities and opportunities for recreation, rest and well being for all women and men who have served or are serving in the Armed Forces of the U.S.

The project was spearheaded by Thomas Reger from the Cement Masons Local 633 in Minnesota. The Bricklayers Local Union 1 installation team was led by apprenticeship coordinators Rick Martagon (Navy Veteran) and Mark Wickstrom (Master Stone Carver and Stone Technician). Additionally, several other trade unions and suppliers rose to the challenge and joined Laticrete to realize this important project.

“We have used Latapoxy 310 Stone Adhesive in the past doing large-scale marble fireplaces,” said Martagon. “Tom Broderson (Laticrete Sales Representative) brought the product over to our training center, and the brick and stone guys loved it. Traditionally, we would have had to pin the caps to the substrate, but with Latapoxy 310 Stone Adhesive, we didn’t have to do that. It saved us a lot of time.”
