Renaissance Pere Marquette Hotel Building Envelope Restoration
Originally built in 1925, the Renaissance Pere Marquette Hotel building sits at the corner of Baronne and Common streets in the Central Business District. The neo-gothic style high-rise extends up 18 floors and is a premier venue for business conferences and corporate events in the city. After sustaining significant damage during Hurricane Katrina, Pascal Architects worked under disaster relief conditions to restore the building envelope in its entirety. This includes a full restoration of the historic terracotta ornaments, masonry, and facade elements, as well as upgrades to the window systems. In addition to the historic restoration, the firm’s construction management services included scope identification, design documents, negotiations, and remediation and restoration construction in order to satisfy the needs of the property owner and insurance provider.
