We had the honor of receiving three awards from The Florida Trust for Historic Preservation in 2017.
The Government House Museum in Saint Augustine was awarded Meritorious Achievement in the Field of Restoration/Rehabilitation.
We did this project for the University of Florida. We were asked to replicate the exterior masonry/coquina finish from the 1930’s and the interior plaster restoration. We worked for Charles Perry & Partners; Jacksonville and the absolute best project superintendent we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with Coley Pitt.
The George Adderley House in Marathon, Florida Keys was awarded Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Restoration/Rehabilitation.
We did this project located at the Crane Point Museum & Nature Center for architect Bert Bender of Key West. The modest home was built in 1903 using tabby construction. We repaired and restored the lime, coral and shell finish by hand just the way Mr. Adderley had done. After Hurricane Irma ripped through the Keys, we contacted the director at the museum, Charlotte Quinn to inquire about the building, she said, “Crane is destroyed but the Adderley House is perfect!”
Master Craftsman Award
This award had not been given out in many years and Randy had no idea that he was to receive this until his name was announced. Randy was extremely honored and very proud to have our son Cody by his side.
Cody is now taking over more of the job site responsibilities from his father and it has been a joy to watch his love of plastering evolve! We are confident in the future of our beloved trade and of our special company!
