Norwood Town Hall Featured in Boston Globe

Gienapp Design’s Norwood Town Hall restoration project was recently featured in the Boston Sunday Globe South section.

  • The $3 million face lift of Norwood Town Hall continues, as workers take painstaking care to repair cracks and plug leaks in the historic 85-year-old building.
  • “It’s slow work,” said Jeff D’Amico, project manager for Compass Project Management. “We’ve had to individually number every stone that comes off the building. It’s like a jigsaw puzzle.’’
  • D’Amico said workers took hundreds of photos of the 150-foot-high tower and catalogued them. Ashlar granite from the original Weymouth quarry was ordered to match the color and design of the exterior covering.
  • The building, officially called the Norwood Memorial Municipal Building, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1996, but architect Dale Gienapp said, “The town has always treated that building like the jewel that it is.”
