Friends University Davis Hall Restoration

Recently, South's Finest played an important part in the Restoration of the 124-year-old Davis Hall Administration Building at Friends University in Wichita, Kansas.

The Davis Administration Building was heavily damaged in a July 2009 hailstorm that hammered the Friends campus and surrounding neighborhoods. Hailstones, some the size of baseballs, heavily damaged the building's slate roof and many of it's architectural components.

South's Finest provided over 700 pieces of fiberglass, including 4 Radius Cornices, 2 Straight Cornice, the turret finials, and the front peak finials.
