Project Description

Neumann Brothers renovated and restored the original part of the Drake University library in the heart of campus. The project included creating conference rooms from smaller storage and office spaces, and extensive interior detailing. Walnut paneling throughout the building was repaired and recreated for a unified look. Plaster dentil moldings and all wall and ceiling surfaces were also meticulously restored.
