Historic & Adaptive Reuse

The challenge of integrating modern systems in historically significant buildings requires innovative designers.

JPA collaborates with our clients to gain a thorough understanding of the preservation goals for renovation or rehabilitation of historic buildings, consulting existing building documents and performing assessments of the facility’s structure and pathways. This knowledge informs creative application of systems to work within the building, minimizing or eliminating damage to the building and its historic assets and surfaces while maintaining high performance of systems.
