Schenectady City Hall
The City Hall in historic Schenectady, New York, was built in 1931 and is an important example of the late Georgian Revival style. It was built by the same firm, McKim, Mead, and White, which first made the style popular in the late 19th century. When the decision was made to build a new city hall in the late 1920s, the city held a nationwide contest to determine who would construct the facility. Schenectady City Hall was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
As part of a renovation project in 2006, Stromberg Architectural Products manufactured the custom cornice that now graces the top of the structure. When quality has to meet the historic integrity of the most important structures in America, the clear choice is Stromberg Architectural Products for the most demanding renovation projects.
The cornice was produced using Stromberg’s Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC). GFRC is an ideal material for exterior elements where the look and feel of true concrete or stone is desired. GFRC weighs considerably less than true stone and can be expected to weather the elements as well as the real thing (even better in environments with consistent exposure to saltwater). Stromberg has the experience and production facilities to produce cornice and other elements in any style, no matter how large or intricately detailed.
