Vance Courthouse

Birmingham, Alabama
Historical Plaster Renovation

For the historical renovation of, and additions to, the 1921 federal courthouse (with intricate ceilings and white coat plaster work throughout) we re-plastered over 180,000 square feet red clay tile and brick — and installed new metal studs.


The project included traditional recasting of molds, as well as Best Practice methods to save as much of the original construction as possible — all while new electrical and plumbing was being installed. In numerous individual areas, our skilled craftsmen used their plaster skills to fix interior brick and stone — employing faux techniques to complete the project more quickly and save money.
