Tabor Grand

Special care was taken with the windows, each of which was restored by hand. Because the original single-pane windows were not energy efficient, a decision was made to mill out the original windows so that they could become double-pane. This was accomplished at a cost of more than half a million dollars.

 

The entire metal cornice work on the fourth floor was removed, numbered, labeled and taken to a shop where it was completely refinished piece by piece. The metal was then coated with a primer to prevent rust and painted with two coats of paint. The wood backing behind the cornice was repaired, resealed and covered with a membrane to protect the building from water and ice. The original metal work was then reassembled on the building.

 

Because the buildup of water and ice on the building was a large issue, a new Bylin product and system was incorporated into the roof. The computerized system senses the weather conditions and can turn on heating elements, keeping snow and ice to a minimum.
