A Maryland Historic Trust grant was used to address restoration and rehabilitation of the bell tower and spire, rework the drain spouts around the perimeter of the building and repoint exterior masonry. Additional repairs to the building envelope, and interior environs included bringing the building into compliance with current building and ADA codes, to repair and restore other failing interior features, and to improve lighting.
The firm managed a sizeable consulting engineering team and coordinate its design for improvements and construction documentation work with MHT and the Historic Preservation Commission in accordance with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards. A comprehensive facilities analyses and photo documentary identified source causes and resultant damages. The firm evaluated the cost/benefit of phasing repairs, develop a budget prioritizing the most critical needs and phased implementation plan for less urgent repairs.
