North United Methodist Church

Indianapolis, Indiana

TowerPinkster worked with North United Methodist Church in Indianapolis to rejuvenate the courtyard between the original building and the 90s addition. It was important to clean and preserve aspects of the building while bringing new life to the space. The original church bell was refurbished along with its housing. A cleaning treatment was applied to the historic limestone surfaces, and masonry was tuckpointed and repaired where needed.

The original landscaping in the area had become overgrown, and the window wells of the lower level showed leakage and water damage to the interior spaces. The landscaping was removed, and a new landscape plan was created. New plants were installed as well as new stone for the ramp, seatwall, and walking path. A cross pattern was designed within the stonework of the path.

The window wells were infilled, and parts of the foundation were excavated to apply a waterproofing treatment. The copper gutters, downspouts, and underground storm drainage were reconfigured and replaced to prevent future flooding and leakage in the interior spaces. Some interior water damage repair was completed as part of this project as well.

Inside the sanctuary, TowerPinkster worked with a consultant to upgrade the electrical and technology. Through the upgrade process, the decorated painted ceiling and molding needed to be refinished, and the chandeliers were refurbished.
