Boston Valley Takes On Another Courthouse Renovation in Miami, Florida

The Miami-Dade County Courthouse in Miami, Florida was completed in 1928. When it was built, it was the tallest building in Miami. Today, as a member of the National Register of Historic Places, the courthouse is undergoing a facade restoration.

Boston Valley has already completed several surveys of the facade and received samples at our facility. Shop drawings are being created from digital scans of the individual blocks. One of the final stages, prior to full scale production, will be the approval by the project team of the mockup erected at Boston Valley. This mockup will be approved for tolerances and color range. Representatives of the project team from Mark 1 Restoration and Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates will be at Boston Valley on Tuesday May 6 to review the completed mock up.
