The Lofts at Sherwood Falls
Located along the Mattabasset River in Kensington CT, this work in progress is an adaptive reuse of the historic Sherwood Industries Mill, once a paper goods and tool fabrication facility. The 4 story masonry and heavy timber structure is being converted from factory space into 71 one and two bedroom market rate condominium units. Maier Design Group is involved in the historic restoration of the exterior of the building including preparation of the paperwork for State
Historic Tax Credits for the renovations. Work includes roof repair, masonry restoration, window replacement, installation of elevators, construction of emergency stairs, and restoration of the monumental stairwell in the main tower. All of the building systems are being upgraded and a full site remediation (for environmental concerns) is also a part of this renovation.
In addition to the renovation of the existing mill building, 14 new townhouses will be constructed across the street. The new townhouses are designed to complement the character of the mill by the use of red brick and roof features that replicate the main entrance of the mill. A smaller, non-historic structure in the main building’s parking lot was renovated to serve as a community center.

Maier Design Group was commissioned for the in-depth renovation and complete restoration of this five-story circa 1880 building in downtown Hartford. Now listed on the National Historic Register, we completed the Federal Historic Preservation Certification. The building is widely known for its 80 plus years as the headquarters for Stackpole Moore Tryon Clothiers. We completely renovated the interior and exterior of this grand building for use as a bank branch facility. The renovation work included lead paint abatement, restoration of a copper façade, masonry repairs and historic window replacements.
This project is winner of the 2008 International Masonry Institute Golden Trowel Award.
