This project involved the historic restoration of a 19th-century four-story Victorian townhouse of approximately 5,700 SF in Baltimore’s historic Bolton Hill Neighborhood. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places and under the purview of the Maryland Historical Society. Morgan State University operates it. The scope of work included complete interior and exterior structural stabilization and aesthetic restoration along with MEP updates, new fire suppression, fire alarm, and telecom systems. Historic elements were carefully protected and maintained during selective demolition, including stabilizing the structure and removing existing walls, ACM (Asbestos Containing Material), pavement, fixtures, and roofing as needed. The contract also entailed sitework, masonry restoration, new elevator installation, bathrooms, and offices.

The project was awarded the Preservation Award for Restoration and Rehabilitation Award from the Baltimore Heritage Society.
