    Featured Project


    Built in 1853, this historic National Landmark Building is an excellent example of mid-19th-century Virginia court buildings. However, the courtroom's original and extensive plaster ceiling and detailing required repair and other interior elements needed attention. Drawing upon extensive historic preservation experience and Jeff Stodghill's in-depth knowledge of period plaster construction and interior finishes, PMA prepared recommendations and drawings to restore the interior of the courthouse to its former glory. The courthouse now boasts restored ornate plasterwork walls, ceilings, and cornices as well as appropriate period colors, finishes, light fixtures, and carpeting.

    PMA worked with Pittsylvania County and the Pittsylvania County Courts on this project with support from structural engineers. Renovations included the installation of a sound control door at the prisoner holding area, the replacement of an exterior access door, the installation of an attic service walkway, and repairs in the attic area to prevent further plaster ceiling damage.
