Bringing History Back to Life- Martin Library
Bringing History Back to Life- The Martin Library The Witmer Group was asked to provide a formal proposal for the restoration/preservation work needed that would restore the Martin Library to its original stature. The exterior walls were thoroughly investigated for stability and soundness, along with calculating the extent and depth of the brownstone deterioration. Upon our investigation, we found the building to be structurally sound but rapidly deteriorating in many areas. Most of the concern included repointing of the mortar in the brownstone and brick veneers, along with the major deterioration of the brownstone veneer. Weathering, age-induced decline, pollutants, and acid rain had accelerated the breakdown of the veneer materials. Our skilled team received the 2018 Historic York Preservation Award for our services. It was truly an honor to perform all restoration/preservation work, along with seeing the library come back to life for the York community.
Watch the wonderful transformation!
