MW GOLDEN CONSTRUCTORS celebrates completed restoration of 140-year-old bank building in Longmont

Jon Schallert, owner of the Schallert Group, is celebrating a new start for a historic building in Longmont, Colorado

Online PR News – 18-June-2016 – Castle Rock, CO – 321 Main Street, the building that once housed Longmont’s first bank is now open for business.

MW GOLDEN CONSTRUCTORS provided extensive interior demolition down to the building’s original framing, saving as much of the original furnishings and features along the way. More prominent restoration features include nineteenth century marble penny tile found under layers of later flooring, the original tin ceiling, original 1870’s brick, and a fireplace made of cast iron and marble.

“Saving the original features was a top priority,” explained Jason Golden, Vice President of MW GOLDEN CONSTRUCTORS. “We rehabilitated the marble penny floors, recreated the ceiling, removed plaster to expose the brick, and refurbished the fireplace. It was a unique project.”

Many new features of the building are made from sustainable materials. Beetle kill paneling was used for architectural woodwork and reclaimed lumber was used for shelving.

As a result of $217,252 worth of construction work, the new space now holds office space for the Schallert group with a second floor containing a renovated apartment for Jon Schallert and his wife. “Without MW Golden, this would never have become the showplace it now is! Thanks to Jason Golden and his entire company for their dedication to this project!
