Restoring the Community
Landmarks are imperative structures to the community because they provide people with recognizable icons. Nawkaw is proud to work to restore landmarks that people see every day and get inspiration from. These landmarks give back to the community, so we want to make sure that we do everything in our power to make these icons stand out.
Project: Cincinnati Music Hall
Location: Cincinnati, Ohio
After decades of wear and tear, the Cincinnati Music Hall in Ohio needed extensive renovations to preserve and restore its former glory. To secure this grand space’s legacy for future generations, improvements to the overall structure were made, and the building was modernized and upgraded extensively.
Nawkaw stepped in to even out the different brick color tones throughout the entire building and finished the nearly two-year renovation project with an even and beautiful finished look. Today, the building stands as world-class music and event space to serve the Cincinnati musicians and citizens.
The brick of the building showed discoloring in many different places. The brick is from a different time and cannot simply be replaced. Color matching to the existing brick was the best option here.
Nawkaw completed touch-ups throughout the building to restore the brick’s natural beauty. The Cincinnati Music Hall will look fabulous for many years to come.
Project: Neenah Clock Tower
Location: Neenah, Wisconsin
As part of the City Hall, the Neenah Clock Tower was originally constructed in 1888.
For more than a century, this four-sided clock tower had suffered damage from pollution, grime and copper stains. In one short week, before using proprietary Nawkaw color treatments, the brick, mortar, and stone were cleaned and restored. Then, the mismatched brick and stone were permanently and beautifully stained to match.
The Neenah Clock Tower in Neenah, Wisconsin, exhibited signs of wear and significant discoloration throughout. The tower was built back in 1888 and stands at 110 feet tall.
Since there was no way to replace the brick with its original batch, Nawkaw was hired to restore the entire tower and restore its natural beauty.
