Stamford’s Ferguson Library completed a historic preservation project, renovating the exterior of its building. A.P. Construction Company contributed to this significant project by donating, in-kind pre-construction and construction management advisory services. Nick Everett, EVP of A.P. Construction led this effort.
Silver, Petrucelli & Associates, the architect for the project, recently announced the firm had won a Merit Award from the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation for façade restoration of Ferguson Library in Stamford.
The library was built in 1909 and is part of the Downtown Stamford Historic District. The front portico was restored and returned to its original appearance through restoration. One column that had been damaged by a fire many years earlier was replaced and restoration was completed on the pediment details and unique architectural features at the roof line. The 100-year old marble steps, brick entry platform, and wooden front door were also restored and replaced.
The Ferguson Library project is one of just eleven preservation projects selected by the Trust for Merit Awards that reflect outstanding preservation of Connecticut’s historic buildings and places.
A.P. Construction completed major interior renovations to five floors of the Ferguson Library in 2011.
