Olana State Historic Site was the home of Frederic Edwin Church (1826–1900), one of the major figures in the Hudson River School of landscape painting.Olana is one of the few intact artists' home-, studio- and estate-complexes in the United States; it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1965.[1][3] It is owned and operated by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, and is also supported by The Olana Partnership, a non-profit 501(c) organization

This project was with the NYS Parks Office of Historic Buildings. The project title was Fire Control and Climate Protection. Bunkoff GC performed floor board removals for the fire sprinkler lines, and had to mark each floor board for their proper reinstallation. All painting had to be approved by the onsite painter to make sure it match perfectly. BGC recreated wood work trims through out the building for chases, heating cabinets. etc. Attention to the historic and amazing details were key to a successful project.
