A mammoth task calling for the restoration of eleven historical buildings and the construction of three new ones, Navillus rose to the occasion and produced extraordinary results.
Navillus was charged with the task of reviving Front Street to its 18th century glory, which meant creating an antiquated charm while maintaining modern functionality and durability. In addition, Navillus had to carefully work within rigid landmark guidelines to achieve the desired look.
Once the restoration of all eleven buildings was complete, Navillus skilled masons then went to work on the three new buildings–an exacting task that required the inclusion of specific architectural elements to complement the surrounding historical structures
