Franklin Elks Lodge noted in construction award

Products from a North Carolina company that were used in the renovation of the Franklin Elks Lodge have earned the company an award.

The honor was part of the Bricks In Architecture competition, which is sponsored by the Brick Industry Association, a brick industry trade group. Pine Hall Brick Company earned the award for two projects, including the Elks lodge work in the renovation/restoration category.

The Elks lodge renovation took place in a building that was formerly a G.C. Murphy’s Five and Dime store from 1958 until 1971, before the building went through a multitude of owners and uses for the next 41 years. The renovation, which used a design by Neil Dixon of LandsHope Studios, centered on a new façade of Pine Hall Brick face brick and limestone trim, coupled with an interior redesign, the company said.
