Project Description

Synagogue Renovations

Temple Beth Zion – Beth Israel

The first of a three-phase renovation program for this 120 year old synagogue required life-safety, fire suppression and mechanical upgrades in major portions of the building, systems preparation for future phases, renovation of the entire ground floor sixty-child daycare facility, selective interior repairs and restoration, structural repairs, and new roofing for the sanctuary wing.

Some of the more historically sensitive work included selective restoration of the original ornamental plaster and decorative painting in the sanctuary, repair of the heavy timber trusses, sub-framing and sheathing above the sanctuary, cleaning and repair of an historic, fifty-five foot wide copper-clad bay, and documenting and prioritizing repair of the historic stained glass.

BWA successfully completed the Phase 1 renovations and has already embarked on the next assignments.
