The Ohio Historic Preservation Awards Office Honors The Chesler Group With The Preservation Merit Award

The Chesler Group and ASM International were represented by Chika Aizu, Senior Vice President of The Chesler Group, who accepted the Preservation Merit Award for preservation and rehabiltation of the 1959 ASM International Headquaters in Materials Park, Ohio.

The Preservation Merit Award recognizes outstanding effort restoring and rehabilitating structures signifigant to the region preserving history, culture or architecture.

The Ohio Preservation Office Awards Luncheon was held Saturday November 3 at Fort Hayes Arts and Academic High School in Columbus, Ohio.

The 50 year old building is one of the youngest historic structures to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Ohio.

As there are relatively few guidelines on how to deal with modern construction comprised primarily of metals, concrete and glass and the restoration work was formidable at times.

The Chesler Group worked closely with the Ohio Historic Preservation Office and National Park Service to develop and write standards for the ASM International Headquarters renovation.
