County of Lehigh old Courthouse - Historical Preservation & Exterior Repainting

W2A Design Group assisted the County of Lehigh in their recent Historic Preservation project at the Old Courthouse located in downtown Allentown at 501 Hamilton Street. W2A Design Group provided bid documents for the exterior repainting of this historic Courthouse, and assisted with the coordination of hazardous materials abatement (existing lead-based paint and asbestos-containing glazing compound), as well as incidental repairs required to existing wood trim, cornice and bell tower components, and replacement of deteriorated glazing compound and broken window panes. The project is currently nearing completion, in time for Allentown's 250th anniversary celebration later this year!
