Voyager Hall and the Epicenter utilize four main types of masonry and stone. First, Minnesota quarry creek natural strata finish stone (750 tons) makes up the main type of stone used on the exterior. Much of the building’s exterior walls are puzzled together using this coarse cut stone as “skin.” The quarry creek stone is also used on the interior as column covers and on the main fireplace facing.
