• Adapting to new uses: Converting a building to a new use can be challenging, as the design and layout of the space may not be well-suited to its new purpose.
  • Historical preservation: Preserving the historical integrity of a building can be a challenge, as some changes to the structure may not be allowed due to preservation laws or regulations.
  • Environmental concerns: Buildings that are being converted may have environmental issues, such as asbestos or lead paint, that need to be addressed before work can begin
  • Building code compliance: Ensuring that the building meets current building codes and safety regulations can be difficult and may require significant changes to the original structure
  • Structural issues: Older buildings may have structural issues that need to be addressed before conversion work can begin, such as foundation problems, load-bearing walls, or rotting wood.
  • Unexpected Problems: As there are a lot of unknowns associated with existing buildings there is always an inherent risk that problems that were not known previously can present themselves through the course of construction.

How we can help
