3rd Place 2008 Masonry Institute of Washington Restoration Award.

The Olympia National Bank Building was reconstructed following the Nisqually earthquake on February 28, 2001. The upper ballustrade base, dentil and architrave levels of the parapet structure were destroyed. The project team achieved a complete seismic reconstruction and re-creation of the original classic terra cotta details of the building. This work included ornate capital detailings and the reestablishment of the upper ballustrade level which originally came down in the 1949 earthquake event.
