Project Description

Neumann Brothers completed the exterior historic restoration of this 100+ year old building. Located in downtown Des Moines, IA, the 20,000 SF restoration project consisted of masonry and stone repair along with tuck pointing, waterproofing, cleaning of all exterior stone and installing lead coated flashing to eliminate water infiltration to the building. A scaffold system surrounding the perimeter of the tower was installed to repair all exterior and interior masonry, roofing and concrete during the project. Completed within six months - an entire year ahead of the required completion date!
