Church of the Covenant Restoration Project Recognized

Church of the Covenant, Cleveland OH 

Cleveland, OH — January 12, 2012 — WMF was recently recognized as one of seven award winners for outstanding projects in University Circle architectural hub in metropolitan Cleveland.  The award recognizes the firm’s effort as part of the Restoration of The Church of the Covenant.  This historic icon is a Ralph Adams Cram designed church on Euclid Avenue opposite University Hospital and adjacent to Case Western University. 


Douglas Hoffman, AIA, WMF’s religious design specialist acted as consulting architect, and Clete Miller as WMF’s Construction Manager by leading that project through a very intense 10 week restoration.  The work included complete new hardwood and stone floor installation in the sanctuary and nave; replastering of crumbling walls; strengthening, rebuilding and refinishing of 100 year old pews; fabrication and installation of new chandeliers to match those originally designed by Ralph Adams Cram; and rebuilding of rear balcony to accommodate a new tracker pipe organ.
