The Pastoral Center renovation has been a very enjoyable project. Neumann Brothers has been very responsive to our needs and obviously wanted to give us a finished product that we and they could both be proud of. I don’t think I could imagine a better experience than we have had. I want to comment on the excellent work done by the Project Superintendent. He managed the site and the project in the most organized manner, always working closely to meet our needs while maintaining a professional and friendly atmosphere. The work was organized, efficient and complete. In my twenty years of experience, I have never seen a project that was run better.
Modernizing for safety and function, maintaining the look and feel of the space.
The project encompassed systematic, interior, and exterior needs.
First and foremost was the MEP – mechanical, electrical, and plumbing – systems, including a new boiler and control valves.
Lighting and audio-visual upgrades will allow for more use of technology necessary to host meetings and functions, crucial to the use of the space.
The building’s historic metal window system needed to be completely removed, repaired, and reinstalled with laminated glass. The exterior metal panel façade was refinished to match the original historic color.
On that note, custom stainless steel door jambs, color matching high performance coating paint color, restoration of plaster work and travertine wall panels allowed us to restore and upgrade elements but allow the design to continue to match its 1962 design.
Perhaps the most visual element, we also restored the notable and magnificent granite paver plaza.
