During almost 50 years in business, Zachau has learned to appreciate the lasting value of Maine’s rich architectural heritage. Our work to renovate the Pennell Institute granted us a chance to keep a key part of that story alive. Past preservation experience served Zachau well in our efforts to update the towering Italianate-style brick structure. Techniques that brought the building back to life included masonry reconditioning and the installation of historically compatible windows, as well as other era-appropriate architectural motifs. Expert attention to those details led to maintenance of the building’s status on the National Register of Historic Places. Zachau’s care for old-world craftsmanship was complemented by construction of the modern interior spaces designed to work in harmony with a 140 year-old local landmark.
