How an Architect Can Help With Your Adaptive Reuse Project, Rochester, New York

Towns and cities in the United States are dotted with historical buildings, many of which are underused or have been abandoned entirely. With unique architectural features and plenty of floor space, adaptive reuse of these existing buildings is increasingly popular. This process is more affordable than new construction and can give your business location a certain authentic charm, especially if you have the help of an architect.

3 Reasons to Hire an Architect for Your Adaptive Reuse Project

Preserving Architectural Features

Retrofitting an existing building to meet your needs is difficult, and trying to work around existing architectural features can make it harder. A skilled architect with experience adapting historical buildings will find innovative solutions to your project’s specific challenges, so you can retain the windows, woodwork, and other elements that made the historical building so attractive in the first place.

Identifying Potential Issues

adaptive reuseMany historical buildings lack the infrastructure a modern business needs, such as adequate electrical supply, data lines, or air conditioning. Improvised solutions may have visually unappealing results, like loud window-mounted air conditioners and wires running from room to room. Fortunately, a reliable architect can identify these issues before they arise, and they’ll know how to make a 19th-century building ready for a 21st-century business.

Regulatory Compliance

Many old buildings are located in historical districts, some of which have strict guidelines about how structures can be renovated. An architect with an understanding of your local requirements will secure the necessary permits and create a design that satisfies your needs while staying within the guidelines of your local historical preservation society.
