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
