Client  |  The Davis Companies
Project Address  |  Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Project Size  |  11-Story Building and 4-Story Mansard

The Union Trust Building is a historical landmark in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh, PA. This 11-story building with precast concrete exterior façade and spectacular 4-story terra cotta mansard roof known as the "chapel" was built in 1901.

In 2014, Stephen J. Wessling Architects, working under executive architect Perfido Weiskopf Wagstaff + Goettel as the exterior restoration architect, performed an extensive façade study focusing mainly on the intricately designed mansard, interior mansard windows and sidewalks along the exterior façade.

Wessling Architects also reviewed all existing drawings and background documents, repair details including the waterproof flashing for each dormer and parapet, specifications and provided project management.
