About the Memorial:
The Memorial to the Enslaved, located on the William & Mary Campus was constructed to commemorate and honor the men, women, and children once enslaved by the college. The structure’s façade is mostly constructed of red range bricks to reflect those found across the historic campus. There are 198 engraved black granite blocks identifying the current named, know, and unknown individuals once effected..
Scope of Work
Scott System was contracted to construct foam formwork to be able to cast the unique “tear drop” shapes incorporated into the memorial. The formwork was constructed using 2.0# V EPS with a polyurethane coated concrete pouring face. The larger of the two tear drops spanned 41’ in length and 13’ in height, and was made up of 20 individual foam pieces. The smaller of the two spanned 26’ in length and 16’ in height and was comprised of 17 total foam pieces. All formwork was manufactured in upstate NY and shipped to the jobsite to be cast in place.
