Constructed in 1873, the Norwich City Hall is considered by many to be the finest French Colonial building in the Northeast. The first floor of the stately building is set several feet off the street and is accessed by ornate cast iron stair assemblies at the Main entrance as well as a secondary North entrance. The steps, along with a cast iron canopy assembly at the main entrance, are an integral part of the 19th century design.
To Design and James Vance Associates were engaged by the City of Norwich to restore the historic cast iron. Working with structural engineer James Grant and a historic metals contractor, the design team completed plans to restore the magnificent stairways back to their original grandeur.
