Project Overview

Heritage was tasked to restore an eighty-year-old Baldwin Acrosonic piano. This vintage instrument had become scratched and discolored after three generations of consecutive use.

Project Overview

Heritage’s staff recently completed the restoration of several stained glass panels for a local church. These pieces had become worn and discolored with age. Using our new stained glass repair studio, the glass was carefully disassembled, cleaned, and put back together with fresh lead. The restored stained glass were placed into four custom-built light boxes for indoor use. Once the assembly was complete, we delivered and installed the light boxes at our client’s location.

 

St Anthony of Padua Interior

Project Overview

Heritage Restoration and Design was contracted to provide interior furnishings to the new St. Anthony of Padua church among the Centennial Hills in Las Vegas, Nevada. After waiting ten years with a rapidly growing parish community, they were finally able to build. Due to the community’s large size and small budget, the parish was unable to build both a church and pastoral center, so the new building was to be utilized for both purposes. Heritage came up with innovative techniques to create a space which could be used interchangeably as both a place of worship and a parish hall. This was accomplished by creating furnishings which both served traditional liturgical purposes but could also be easily stored as needed.

 

Restored Millwork Raised Pulpit

Project Overview

Heritage was asked to review a collection of historic millwork and design a new pulpit and bishop’s canopy around the historic components. The 100 year old millwork was in need of stripping and refinishing. The wood components needed to be blended in with new wood components in a manner in which they were allowed to stand out on their own. The original millwork was very dry and brittle and required special processes to rejuvinate the wood components without creating splits and warping material. HRD suspended a wooden cross weighing 250 pounds across a 75 foot expanse at 35 feet in the air. Heritage manufactured a set of custom wood candlesticks with built in historic wood statuary.
