• New framing that included the floors, ceilings and walls.
• Adding a stair tower with specific attention to match the exterior finishes
• Updating the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems
• Installing new windows approved by the local Historic Preservation Review Committee
• Crown and ceiling moulding throughout the office space
• Cleaned, repointed, repaired and replaced the exterior brickwork
• Preserved existing wood cornice and ornamental wood brackets
• Exterior paver patio and walkway with new landscaping, fencing, railing and paving
