Stuart Dean Restores Architectural Appointments to Original Condition at the Brandywine Building
New York City – Stuart Dean, an international provider of renowned architectural restoration services, is pleased to announce that the company recently completed a comprehensive restoration project involving metal, stone, flooring and windows at the Brandywine Building, an 18-floor, 410,000 sq. ft. commercial high rise located at the gateway to the downtown Wilmington, De. business district. Stuart Dean partnered with The Walsh Company, construction manager; BPGS Construction LLC, general contractor; and Sun-Lite Corporation, which provided window film application.
“With the restoration of the Brandywine Building, Stuart Dean was able to seamlessly blend new architectural appointments with the building’s original architectural qualities,” said Mark Parrish, president and CEO of Stuart Dean. “It is the kind of comprehensive solution we’ve been providing to commercial building owners of all kinds since our company was formed more than 80 years ago. With our work on the Brandywine Building, we are once again able to point with pride to a restored building in an important business district.”
Work on the building included restoration of metal in the lobby and bronze elevators along with the refurbishment of the flame-cut granite walls to their original condition. Opaque window film replaced existing tinted glass, and crews also performed repairs to the terrazzo floors. The job took approximately four months to complete.
“The work at the Brandywine Building was a comprehensive undertaking, which required great attention to detail,” said Rick DiCesare, project engineer of BPGS Construction, LLC. “We were pleased to partner with Stuart Dean on this project and think that the building’s owner and tenants should be very proud of the results.”
