Hallock & McMillan, Freimann, & Fechheimer Buildings

Bremik Construction was honored to be part of the adaptive reuse renovation of the historic Hallock & McMillan (the oldest standing commercial building in Portland), the seismic upgrade of the adjacent Fechheimer building, and the reconstruction of the Freimann building. As part of the client’s plan to increase the seismic resiliency of their historic buildings, we installed a concealed cast-in-place concrete moment frame behind the Hallock & McMillan’s reconstructed façade. The Hallock & McMillan building was originally constructed in 1857, requiring the exterior restoration to masonry and plaster. Cast iron reproduction were created of pilasters, arches, and cartouches, and reclaimed materials were incorporated for historical accuracy.
