Old Main Exterior Renovation, Augustana College 

Rock Island, IL

Old Main, an icon on Augustana College’s Rock Island campus, received an exterior restoration to refurbish the building to its original character. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Old Main is home to Augustana College’s Liberal Arts department and houses classrooms and office space as well. The architectural style is patterned after the main building at Uppsala University in Sweden.

The exterior work on Old Main included masonry restoration, roof replacement, and restoration of the historic dome (roofing, windows, stair, carillon system, guilding, painting, and timber carpentry).
