Enoch-Pratt Library

Baltimore, Maryland

When describing the library, the original financial donor, Enoch Pratt, once stated that he intended the library was intended for all people saying, “{the library} shall be for all, rich and poor without distinction of race or color, who, when properly accredited, can take out the books if they will handle them carefully and return them.” This historic landmark gives physical manifestation to his vision of the public library system. Over 300 monumental steel windows complete the masonry fenestration with great aesthetic details. The operation of these windows is very unique, utilizing an “X’ shaped hinge to cast the windows into an opened position.

Scope for this project included steel window restoration, cast-iron restoration, high performance coatings, brass hardware restoration, steel profile replacement, and interior and exterior storm window installations.
