Berglund Construction has recently been awarded multiple projects throughout Wisc. These projects include the Simmons Island Beach House Restoration (Phase 1 and 2), the Southport Beach House Restoration in Kenosha and Winnebago County Courthouse Window Replacement in Oshkosh. These projects are significant due to their National Register of Historic Places status. The National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) is the United States federal government's official list of districts, sites, buildings, structures and objects deemed worthy of preservation for their historical significance.
Berglund has had a long-standing, successful career in maintaining the historic character of buildings like these. Our in-house staff of carpenters, tuck pointers, masons and highly specialized preservationists use traditional techniques and state-of-the-art technology to protect and preserve historically significant structures for generations to come.
The Simmons Island Beach House is located in Simmons Island Park in Kenosha, Wisc. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003. Land for the Simmons Island Park was donated in 1916 by industrialist Zalmon G. Simmons and the Tudor-style building was built in 1934 during the Depression-era as a federal Works Progress Administration project. For phase 1 of the project, Berglund will be performing structural repairs, masonry repairs, stucco repairs, carpentry repairs, and window replacements. Phase 2 will continue to address phase 1 repairs in addition to interior renovations. The project is expected to be completed by January 2020.
The Southport Beach House is a historic public building completed in 1940 at Southport Park on Lake Michigan in Kenosha, Wisc. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003. Berglund’s scope of work includes structural concrete repairs, lead paint abatement, masonry reclad, tuckpointing, painting, stone repairs, and electrical work.
Lastly, Berglund is performing a complete window replacement for the Winnebago County Courthouse Building. The work being performed includes 7,000 sqft of historic exterior window replacement utilizing a Wausau window system, glass block replacement, repairs to the interior finishes, and abatement work. This project is expected to be completed by December 2020.
