Project Overview

Heritage’s staff recently completed the restoration of an antique entrance for St. Bede’s Academy. Since portions of the entrance trim had to be restored without disassembly, specialized techniques were employed to repair and refinish each surface. Several doors, a stained glass window frame, and an original light fixture were also repaired and finished to a like-new condition.

 

Restored Church - Immaculate Conception

Project Overview

Heritage Restoration and Design was invited into this project by the pastor and church committee as design support for a local architect and was ultimately awarded a contract for a variety of components. Originally this church was constructed in the mid 1900s and unfortunately burned to the ground. It was later rebuilt but not to the same scale or architecture. In the early 2000s it was decided that an interior renovation was needed to bring back many of the lost elements during the reconstruction. Heritage, through its experience in this field, coordinated design elements with a local architecture firm and rough construction details with a local general contractor. Final installation of furnishings and artwork were completed by Heritage’s artisans.

Project Overview

Springdale Cemetery, in Peoria, Illinois, is host to many fine, vintage statues. Over time, a statue of Jesus during the Sermon on the Mount, lost its outstretched right hand. The Springdale Historic Preservation Foundation contracted Heritage Restoration to recreate the missing hand and finish it in such a way that the hand would blend with the 70 year old exterior of the original statue.
