If These Walls Could Talk…

Walker Tower’s walls rival those of a medieval fortified city in strength, but ancient walls never protected like this. The structure of Walker Tower’s walls is layered to achieve optimum results.

An exquisite layer of rich caramel-toned brick covers an insulating mortar gap, under which lies a layer of hollow terra cotta block that provides optimal thermal and acoustic protection.

The interiors are finished with expertly hung mold resistant drywall (with a level 5 finish, the highest standard). These compound walls, 18 inches thick on average, measure up to 2 feet thick in some locations.
