Located in Moline’s Overlook District, the Deere-Wiman House and Butterworth Center were constructed in 1872 and 1892, respectively. These neighboring, historic mansions are now managed by a non-profit organization. Working with the preservation consultant, Sullivan Preservation, SGH assessed the structure’s condition and helped prepare a Historic Structure Report for both homes and the ancillary buildings.


Scope | Solutions


SGH assessed the condition of several structures, including the mansions and their additions, carriage houses, and tunnels extending from the homes to their respective garages/carriage houses. For both properties, SGH performed the following:

  • Observed the structures’ interiors and exteriors to document the existing conditions and any readily visible deterioration

  • Documented structural damage, deterioration, and evidence of water infiltration

  • Provided repair and restoration recommendations to extend the useful life of the structures

  • Recommended additional investigation for certain components exhibiting significant structural damage

  • Prepared a report summarizing our findings, which were included in the Historic Structure Report and Preservation Plan prepared by Sullivan Preservation
