Holabird & Root Wins Excellence Award for Renovation

Holabird & Root congratulates the team that worked on the University of Chicago Midway Studios Renovation for winning the 2014 Preservation Excellence Award in Exterior Rehabilitation from the city of Chicago Department of Planning and Development. This historical renovation took place over 4 years and carries historical significance as the home base of famous sculptor Laredo Taft. The rehabilitation included a complete re-roofing and skylight renovation, exterior restoration and tuck-pointing, a completely reconstructed north entry porch from historic photos, and a new west entry from the Logan Center designed to keep in the same spirit as the historic east entry. Holabird team members included Greg Cook, Greg Grunloh, Jan Behounek, Jamison McBride, and Matt Blewitt.
