The plan is to provide million dollar restoration to six historic landmarks located in Brazil, Mexico, India, New Zealand, Japan and the United Kingdom.

The news release from PRWEB today is as follows:
“College Point, NY (PRWEB) May 30, 2012
According to a recent report by Art Daily, American Express has partnered with the World Monuments Fund (WMF) in order to provide million-dollar restoration to six historic landmarks located in Brazil, Mexico, India, New Zealand, Japan and the UK. While this project is designed with an international appeal to improve tourism and preserve history, the professionals at Mascon Restoration believe that many U.S. landmarks are in need of improvement. The company approves of these lofty efforts to protect important symbols of our world, but stresses that urban American landmarks provide just as much of a history to local communities.
The WMF plans to tackle these large projects through adaptive reuse of structures while maintaining an effort to salvage and preserve historical elements. Through a variety of tactical construction methods, the program aims to increase visitation and improve the surrounding area with signage and mapping efforts. So how exactly does a building in India relate to a dilapidated structure in New York?
Mascon Restoration has provided a series of reconstruction services to the New York area for several years. From roofing to water proofing, the company has done everything from enhancing building exteriors to using efficient techniques to rebuild structures to meet current construction standards. The company’s myriad of services allow older buildings to come back to life, which is not that far from the adaptive reuse focus the WMF is taking on as part of its charity.
According to Mascon Restoration, the quality of life in local communities declines as abandoned buildings suffer uncontrolled damage, such as graffiti and other acts of vandalism. Not only does Mascon Restoration provide solutions to restore these historical buildings, it offers ways to prevent further damage. For instance, through the company’s unique graffiti-proofing service, local governments can benefit from avoiding clean-up costs in the future.
Since many at-risk structures are in lower-income areas, Mascon Restoration is committed to improving communities at affordable rates. Through the hard work of Mascon professionals, local historic structures are transformed into refreshing lofts, office spaces and tributes to a community’s history. As part of their mission to preserve history and refresh communities, the company urges citizens to care for their landmarks and seek professional solutions to improve their conditions.
Based in New York, Mascon Restoration is a trusted reconstruction company that focuses on preserving older buildings. The company offers roofing, waterproofing, masonry restoration services among many other structural improvements. Working with local authorities the company is permitted to conduct Law 11 violation removal services and restore buildings to current construction regulations. Local communities continue to benefit from the company’s dedication to improving structural aesthetics through services such as façade inspection.”
