Preserving history and the original architecture was key in the resent renovation of St. Peter’s Church in Pittsburgh. It was the church’s desire to bring this historical building back to as close to its original looks and condition as to when it was built back in 1855, before fire destroyed the structure in 1870. Working from original photographs provided by the church staff, Tech 2000 manufactured and supplied all of the new wood work to match existing wood work within the church, such as the HVAC Covers in the center and sides of the church, new front kneeler walls and ramp with railing to the Main Altar, Reconciliation Rooms, Statue Niches at the back of the Church, Choir Loft Cabinets with wood paneling to match original wood panels, base board and casing to match original just to list some of the items that were fabricated.
Tech 2000 worked closely with Nick Rosky of Volpatt Construction who was the general contractor on this project along with the architect Ian Morrison of the architectural firm of Radelet, MCarthy & Polletta Inc. throughout the project to help achieve the goal of matching as much of the original details possible to the beauty of intricate wood working centuries ago.
