Stuart Dean to Restore Four Elevations of Aluminum Facade at 55-Story Office Building in Seattle

Stuart Dean, an international provider of renowned architectural restoration services, is restoring four elevations of aluminum facade at 1201 Third Avenue, a 55-story office building in the heart of downtown Seattle. Built in 1988, the high-rise has experienced wear and tear over the years, creating an aged facade in need of cleaning.

The company will clean, refinish and apply a protective coating to the architectural aluminum window systems and ornamental metal. Stuart Dean's work on 1201 Third Avenue will result in a cleaned and brightened appearance of the building's four elevations, totaling nearly 300,000 square feet. The building is managed by Wright Runstad & Company.

"We are pleased to restore 1201 Third Avenue to its original condition by extending the service life of the aluminum on the building's facade," said Mark Parrish, president and CEO of Stuart Dean. "For this ongoing restoration project, Stuart Dean has designed and implemented a quality assurance program to monitor the conditions of the restoration and preservation. This will result in cost savings for the client, which is what led them to selecting Stuart Dean and the company's full array of offerings."

Stuart Dean customized a schedule for the client to enable one elevation to be restored per year, as opposed to attempting to complete the entire project in one year. One elevation was restored through October 2013, the second will be restored in 2014, the third in 2015 and the fourth in 2016.

1201 Third Avenue is located across the street from the Seattle Art Museum and Benaroya Hall, which is the home of the Seattle Symphony. The high-rise also features views of Elliott Bay, the Olympic Mountains and downtown Seattle.

Stuart Dean repairs damage to architectural assets and restores surfaces at centuries-old buildings and newly constructed facilities with minimal interruption to business. The company's advanced processes and products restore natural stone and other architectural appointments and protect surfaces from staining and deterioration caused by environmental contamination and everyday use. Stuart Dean's expertise includes metal refinishing; stone polishing, cleaning and protection; wood refinishing; glass restoration; innovative and sustainable grouts and flooring solutions; and curtain wall and facade restoration.

Stuart Dean's vast experience gained during more than 80 years in business enables the company to provide unique solutions to costly maintenance challenges, including cost-effective restoration programs that are custom-designed by the most skilled, knowledgeable and safety-conscious technicians in the industry.
