Warehouse District Rehabilitation

In Spring 2016, Mayer Building Company completed a historic rehabilitation for the Jackson & Jackson Law Firm on Baronne Street. At the time of our work the building had suffered some foundation and sub-foundation failures. The result of the failure included severely cracked load-bearing masonry walls, roof leaks, and all around finishes and millwork damage. Mayer Building Company shored the old brick building and restored its facade and interiors back to its former glory and austerity.
