Last May, we began work at the historic Brown County Courthouse in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The scope of the project included restoration of the original copper dome, as well as repairs to the concrete sub-dome underneath.
We are proud to announce that the project is now complete, and was finished on schedule and on budget. The local news station WBAY recently aired a detailed story on the project that can be viewed here.
“There’s a lot of historic decorative painting and plaster work in the building we wouldn’t want damaged because of a roof leak,” said Brown County Facilities Engineer Doug Marsh. “It’s about maintaining the building, protecting its integrity and extending its life, so the new copper dome should last another 100 years.”
The Brown County Courthouse was built in 1908 and has been a fixture of the Green Bay skyline ever since. Many local residents know that their beloved Green Bay Packers actually practiced on the courthouse grounds in the early years of the football franchise. The building was subsequently placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
We are extremely proud to have led the restoration of this beautiful and historic building. We are confident it will remain a centerpiece of the Green Bay community for many decades to come!
