The Korte Company’s current renovation project for The Boeing Company includes a revitalization and remodeling of the former Desloge Mansion, which will be converted to a meeting and conference room facility. The extensive demolition, replacement, repair and refinishing will result in twelve conference rooms with teleconferencing capabilities, common areas and a dining and recreation area. The goal of the redesign is to replicate the original period décor while updating the infrastructure.
In addition to the extensive interior work involved in polishing up this jewel of bygone days, The Korte Company will be adding an elevator and stairway, installing new steel windows and tuckpointing the original Indiana limestone. The first floor will encompass a lounge and common area. The second and third floors will be converted to conference and break out rooms. The basement (rathskellar) will have a dining/food service area with space for recreation. The fourth floor will remain unchanged and be used primarily for storage. The targeted completion date is scheduled for October of 2006.
According to Todd Korte, president and CEO of The Korte Company, “When you work on a project of this stature, you are able to better appreciate the architecture and craftsmanship that accompanies these beautiful structures.”
