Celebrating a Century of Craftsmanship

1-13-2015 | Rick A. Steinrock

According to the history books, 1914 brought us Charlie Chaplin’s first film, Mother’s Day, and the beginning of World War I. It also marked our first year in business. So much has changed in the last hundred years, but our commitment to craftsmanship and our dedication to providing shelter to our community has never wavered.

Our customers joined us in a black-tie Great Gatsby Party to celebrate our 100th year in business. To fit the jazz-age theme, the event was held in the historic Rathskeller Room of the Seelbach Hotel.

Not many family-owned businesses can claim the accomplishment of a century in business.  After four generations, we are grateful to have been a part of so many iconic examples of local architecture. We are honored to have contributed to such local landmarks as the Louisville Water Company building in the Clifton neighborhood, the Muhammad Ali Center, and KFC Yum! Headquarters.

Looking forward, we’ve contributed to buildings which will continue to help our Louisville community grow. These projects include facilities for major employers such as LG&E, Brown-Forman and a training facility for UPS. We’ve also capped off facilities for the University of Louisville, Bellarmine University, and the University of Kentucky.

We start 2015 confident that the next century will bring more opportunities to make our mark on the ever-changing skyline of both the Louisville and Lexington areas. From neighborhood homes to public or corporate spaces, it’s our privilege to add the crowning touch to any project.
