Sturgeon Bay Historical Society Announces Contractors for Granary Restoration

The Sturgeon Bay Historical Society (SBHS) has contracted with structural-engineering services firm Silman to oversee the restoration of the historic Teweles and Brandeis Granary. The SBHS has raised private donations to restore the structure and is working with the City of Sturgeon Bay to finalize plans to return it to its original location on the westside waterfront.

Silman, an award-winning firm with offices in New York, Boston and Washington, D.C., will provide structural-engineering services. Silman associate Jeffrey Beane is a graduate of Sturgeon Bay High School with a B.S. in architectural engineering and an M.S. in structural engineering from the Milwaukee School of Engineering. The SBHS has also contracted with La Dallman of Milwaukee and Boston for architectural services. Michael Till, of Michael J. Till Associates Planners and Engineers of Sturgeon Bay, will provide construction management.

The SBHS will host an informational meeting and celebration March 9 at the Union Supper Pub, 23 W. Oak St. in Sturgeon Bay. At 3 pm, the SBHS will give a brief history of the granary, and Beane, Dallman and Till will be on hand to discuss the project and introduce their firms. The meeting will include an opportunity for open discussion about possible alternatives, strategies and desired amenities. The event is open to the public; all are welcome.
