Design for Renovation

Renovation and Rehabilitation

Historic structures demand and deserve a thoughtful and thorough design approach that honors their importance to the community.

Dunbar’s extensive experience includes renovations of facilities for adaptive reuse and buildings with historical value. As problem-solvers, we generate creative structural solutions for existing historic buildings, while conserving their historical value and aesthetic.

Dunbar’s renovation and rehabilitation services include:

  • Review of existing as-built documents, if available, or development of new structural framing drawings
  • Investigation and analysis of buildings in order to document structural deficiencies
  • Preparation of construction documents
  • Provision of construction administration during repair

When to Call Us

Our typical renovation projects involve increasing live or dead loads, creating new wall openings, removing floors or roofs, removing columns, conducting building envelope analyses, performing lateral stability analyses and updating structures to current code requirements.

Dunbar’s teamwork is exceptional. They work with us to meet the obligations of the project, they’re always on time and they’re highly collaborative with our project team.
