Stockyard Bank Building

Building Envelope and Historic Preservation Consultant as part of a multi-discipline team to study and plan the rehabilitation of the 1924 Chicago Landmark.  Designed by Epstein, Chicago’s 1st architect who was also a licensed structural engineer, the bank has sat vacant since the last 1960’s.

Immediate stabilization was executed during the design phase based on the findings of an up-close assessment, destructive testing and document review.  The brick clad concrete frame with a 4-story central tower previously had it’s terra cotta ornament removed and stored inside with plywood protection and other stabilization methods installed over the areas of removal. These methods were reinforced and areas of brick were rebuilt, tuckpointed and cleaned to spur potential buyers imagination as to what a fully restored building could inspire.
