Reuse Feasibility Studies

SARUP and UWM offer


The Historic Preservation Institute works with clients to study the reuse possibilities of historic buildings.  Along with data collection documenting existing conditions, the Institute assists clients at the very early stages of planning to generate programmatic spaces that are appropriate in size, character and budget for a sensitive reuse of the existing building.  Historic Preservation guidelines, along with local building and zoning codes, are considered at a very early stage and help guide the project to a realistic outcome.  In many cases programming needs will require additional spaces or significant site modifications in order to make reuse feasible.
