(York, Pa.) Wagman Construction, Inc. was presented with a 2021 Merit Award during the Keystone Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Excellence in Construction awards ceremony. Wagman received the award for their restoration work on the Trickett Hall Clock Tower at the Pennsylvania State University Dickinson School of Law. The award ceremony was held on November 3, 2021 at Spooky Nook Sports and recognizes and publicizes the outstanding work performed on projects built by ABC Keystone members. The project received the award in the Renovation category, projects under $1 million.
Wagman’s Special Projects Group completed the restoration of the 112-foot-high tower, skying above all other structures on the campus. Located in Carlisle, Pa., the building is over 100 years old and is part of the university’s hub for teaching. The team restored existing timber beams, exterior wood, plaster and coatings of the clock tower, and repointed the brick masonry. To complete the restoration, the structure needed to support 162,000 pounds of scaffolding. A third-party engineer designed wood beams that Wagman installed in the attic space to pick up the scaffold point loads.
