Abstract: Over a five year period, an historic structure of over 130,000 square feet was completely restored at a cost of more than $10 million. Improvements included total replacement or repair of almost every architectural feature inside and out and new utility systems throughout. Project engineers were challenged by the years of neglect due to under-funding of facilities maintenance and a regulatory requirement to limit phases of the reconstruction to under $1 million.
