Location: Hopkinsville, KY
Type: Façade Restoration
Client: Western State Hospital

Western State Hospital is an acute care hospital, accredited by The Joint Commission (TJC) and certified by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The hospital was built in 1854 and has been a long-term care facility for most of its existence. It is also on the National Register for Historic Places. The years had taken their toll on the exterior of this historic building, and SSRG was brought in to execute comprehensive facade and building envelope restoration, including restoring the building’s impressive dome.

See SSRG’s experience with other historic towers. 

The scope included:

  • New windows
  • New gutters
  • Façade restoration
  • Carpentry restoration to the dome
  • Patching to the top of the dome
  • Waterproofing coating to the top of the dome
  • Purchased local soffit and new materials from the local amish down the street,

The local soffit and many new materials were purchased from local Amish vendors, which pleased the Hopkinsville community by keeping business local.
