The Keck Group's Church Pew Refinishing Since 1972

Dear Bob, As the Church's owner representative on our major renovation project and on behalf of the church, I want to thank you for your outstanding performance on the pew renovation. The pews look amazing and have drawn rave reviews from the congregation. Your advice as we considered finish and other options put us on the right path. The refinishing and reuphostering was done efficiently and professionally. You really went above and beyond expectations when you responded to the scheudule pinch that we created by our late fabric selection. As you recall, having all three sections done by the end of August and having the center section done for a wedding in mid-August was critical to us. The innovative phasing that you suggested and then the implemented worked perfectly and made it possible for us to meet all of our deadlines. As one who's been involved in a lot of projects over the years, it was a pleasure to deal with people who take a problem not of their making and solve it instead of using it as an excuse. Thanks for working with us on this important project. Sincerely yours, William K. Wakefield Nassau Project Manager

The Keck Group is once again back at St. Patrick’s in 2017 employing a modern epoxy-based anchoring system. 
Additionally, the Lady Chapel has been removed, as well as all of the South Transept Pews, to facilitate a heavy duty ramp from 51st street, through the south doors, across the nave, and up the stairs to the hallway surrounding the sanctuary.  Heavy glass panels are being erected at the entrance of the Lady Chapel in order to secure a somber relevance to the space, rather than the original wide open entrance.
Although we refinished the Lady Chapel pews twenty years ago, the Cathedral wanted to match them to the recently refinished pews in the nave and transepts, so this was accomplished prior to reinstallation.  Included were new kneelers and Atwood Hamlin Pew Form Cushions..
Work was completed in early October, 2017.
