Lewiston District Courthouse, by Wright-Ryan

In the heart of downtown Lewiston stood the old Music Hall, built in 1877. Plans called for it to be rebuilt as a courthouse – but when Wright-Ryan Construction commenced demolition, the masonry walls and timber roof trusses were so deteriorated we were confronted with a larger challenge than anticipated. We worked with the team to develop cost-effective strategies that allowed the project to move ahead.  Wright-Ryan has the experience and depth to react creatively and saw the project through to a successful conclusion. A landmark structure has been reborn to serve the citizens of Lewiston.
