Rehabilitation
Scully Building, Lincoln

 

 
   
 

 

In 2001, this 1907 red sandstone structure was devastated by a fire, damaged greatly by both the flames and water. The building remained vacant until local residents Patrick and April Doolin purchased the property in 2009. Since then, the Doolins have restored the sandstone exterior and reconstructed the roof. The interior has been renovated, with many of its historic wood details, doors, windows, and floor tiles restored. The Doolins updated the building using green technology: a geo-thermal HVAC system was installed, recycled materials were used for insulation, and high-efficiency lighting was installed throughout. The restoration of the Scully Building has also benefited the community of Lincoln by providing jobs during a difficult time. The services of over 20 local companies were involved with the restoration and the offices of the Doolin’s company, Integrity Holdings, located in the building, employs about 25 local residents. The jury was impressed with “this painstaking rehabilitation and the impact it has had on the community.”
