The New York Acid Staining project is located on the Gold Coast in New York appoximately 40 minutes outside of Midtown Manhatten. The grounds of the residence once belonged to Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones and TRC was asked by the new owner to stain the entire exterior which was approximately 27,000 SF. This project was very unique and there were over 125 large concrete pieces that were lifted by crane to set in place. The contractor who placed the concrete, Tommy Ruttura of New York, said "it was like putting together an extremely large concrete jig saw puzzle with a crane and I have never built a pre-cast building quite like it." In order to stain this much vertical surface TRC used a gas powered sprayer to spray the acid stain with and had another man, sometimes 2-men, brush any runs that frequently happen on vertical surfaces.
