North Carolina

The Alton Lennon Federal Building and Courthouse, which is on the National Register of Historic Places Landmarks, is a Federal building and courthouse located at Wilmington, North Carolina. It was designed by the Architect James A. Wetmore and built between 1916 and 1919. It is an imposing three-story, light sandstone building.

The building was severely affected by Hurricane Florence in September 2018 and when the building lost power during the storm, mold spread throughout the structure, spurred on by the hot and humid weather. Walter P Moore were appointed to undertake an initial assessment for repairs to the structure. The client retained us to provide design review services for the building envelope through the design process – from concept to delivery. We leveraged our experience with similar federal projects to provide key input in the early stages of design.
