Myers Constructs, Inc., Wins Grand Jury Award in Renovation From The Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia
Philadelphia, PA – March 10, 2010 – Myers Constructs, Inc., received a Grand Jury Award from The Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia (PAGP) for a major renovation and repair project at The Fleisher Art Memorial, the nation’s oldest tuition-free art school located on Catherine Street in South Philadelphia. This award was bestowed by a distinguished panel of historic preservation experts at PAGP.
Myers Constructs’ Fleisher restoration project entailed repairing and replacing 83 wooden windows – most of which were nearly a century old – with the goals of maintaining the historical integrity of the buildings, achieving energy efficiencies, and providing a safer and more secure environment for the 17,000 people who visit the institution throughout the year.
Myers Constructs’ President Tamara Myers explained the motivation behind her company’s involvement with the Fleisher renovation. “We were honored to have the opportunity to bring our skills, our love of old buildings, and our attention to energy efficiency all together for such a great institution,” she explained. “Fleisher’s mission is one that we think is critical to our community, and we are happy to be part of Fleisher’s community with this project.”
