Mascon Restoration Tames Wild Buildings Into Modern Gems
Architects and construction companies are finding new ways to be green. Mascon Restoration has been transforming run-down structures into aesthetically-pleasing spaces for businesses, communities, and residents of New York.
NEW YORK, NY, May 31, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Although buildings are not collected in museums or protected by frames, they are still a major form of art and creative spirit among American citizens. As people search for new ways to re-use materials to avoid environmental damage, some are undertaking major projects to reinvent buildings. Whether a building is being transformed or updated for historical preservation or public use, Mascon Restoration is a company fluent in reconstruction and protecting these under-valued landmarks.
A recent article in the New York Times chronicles the structural achievements led by progressive artist, Clive McCarthy. In 2005, he revealed blueprints to create an innovative space for him and his wife in which they could live and create art. After putting forward $2.3 million, McCarthy became the proud, but reluctant owner of an old Lucky Strike warehouse facility located in a "gritty fringe neighborhood" of San Francisco.
Although an artist himself, McCarthy hired professional designer Stanley Saitowitz to carry out the renovation. Saitowitz explains, "The idea was to restore the openness and rawness of the space by peeling away dropped ceilings, paneling and partitions, and then to insert into that rough setting 'little jewels or set pieces'." On the other side of the country, Mascon Restoration is providing similar reconstruction services to help preserve and restore dilapidated buildings in the New York area.
The professionals at Mascon Restoration commend the lofty venture that McCarthy and Saitowitz embarked on. After their efforts, the warehouse was transformed into an open place where the McCarthys could live and display art. Mascon Restoration uses such inspiration to provide services to older buildings in local communities. "McCarthy's project really showed the importance of historical preservation," says one Mascon construction expert, "Without that dedication the history of that Lucky Strike warehouse could've been lost forever, and with a little hard work it's brought new life to their community."
Quality of life is an essential part of Mascon Restoration's mission. Employees are skilled professionals who can inspect buildings and bring them up to current construction codes. Just as McCarthy was dedicated to creating an inspiring space, Mascon Restoration works to restore old buildings to a quality that residents can be proud of.
Mascon Restoration is a trusted reconstruction company that focuses on preserving older buildings in New York. The company's services include roofing, waterproofing, and masonry restoration services among a wide-ranging list of other structural improvements. Mascon Restoration is also permitted to conduct Law 11 violation removal services and restore buildings to current construction regulations. As a company that sees buildings as a symbol of a community, its professionals are dedicated to restoring structures to a vibrant condition that is positive for an entire community.
