Madison Branch of BRC Earns Madison Historic Trust Award

What a great week! The Madison Trust for Historic Preservation gave an award for the Gates of Heaven Project in Madison, Wisconsin. BRC-Madison worked closely with the owner, City of Madison, and architect, InSite Architects, LLC, while completing the masonry restoration portion of the project.

See all the winners at the Madison Trust’s Website.

We’d like to thank the City of Madison for trusting us with this historic project, and InSite for helping to bring the restoration to fruition.

The Gates of Heaven Synagogue building was originally built in 1863. The same man who designed the Synagogue – August Kutzbock – also designed Wisconsin’s second State Capitol Building. Gates of Heaven survives today as one of the oldest synagogues still standing in the United States.

A special thank you goes out to those pictured outside the banquet, from left to right; our Project Manager Ben Nelson, Foreman Mike Weier, Architect Steve Mar-Phol, President of Madison Historic Trust Lynn Bjorkman, Building Owner Rep Amy Canlon, and Architect Zac Mar-Phol.

And finally,  thank you to our crew who worked on the project, and ensured BRC quality throughout.

We’d also like to congratulate InSite Architects, LLC on their second award for the night: Supporting Business of The Madison Trust for Historic Preservation.
