Details: The General Theological Seminary covers one full square block in the Chelsea section of Manhattan. The numerous buildings which make up the complex were constructed at various periods throughout the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries, and the complex is landmarked by the New York Landmarks Preservation Commission.

From 2001 to 2004 Nicholson & Galloway restored the exteriors of Sherred Hall, Lorillard Hall and White & Edson Hall. The work of this project included:

• 9,000 square feet of plywood roof decks
• 9,000 square feet of Vermont Slate
• 100% new copper gutters and flashings
• Extensive roof truss repairs
• 100% masonry repointing
• 9 ornate chimneys rebuilt
• 300 square feet brownstone replacement
• 1 copper cupola entirely rebuilt
• 100% new lightning protection

As always, all work was supervised and performed by Nicholson & Galloway’s own personnel.
