General Contractor: J.H. Findorff & Sons

Project Size: 177,850 sq. ft.

Location: Milwaukee, WI

Challenge: Roman was enlisted to help remodel a historic building, running power through an existing structure with slanted floors and working around 18-inch-thick concrete, a style not normally used in modern construction.

Solution: While leveling the existing floors, Roman was able to embed conduit in the floors and add new wiring without disrupting the building's historic character. Close coordination and constant x-raying ensured that we completed the work without disrupting any existing structure.

"Any time you're dealing with a historic project, there are challenges. Roman did very well. It was a great team effort. It's tough to start from scratch using the shell of the existing building."

Eric Sadler, Project Manager, Findorff

Additional Details: The building was originally constructed in 1907 for the Ziegler Candy Company. The 98 open-style apartments feature Energy Star appliances, including washer and dryer, large windows, high ceilings and exposed ductwork. A new three-story parking structure is accessible through the basement and a second story bridge.
