Conversion and repurposing of existing facilities has become commonplace as owners and developers react to meet the needs of everchanging market demands and the need for a more sustainable attitude towards the built environment. Many owners and developers look to designers like Walter P Moore to provide progressive, creative, and unique structural solutions for repurposed spaces – often exposing the structural framing as an armature of the architectural expression. Buildings which are architecturally significant require a more thoughtful touch, reaching back to the original architectural character of a building through historical preservation and restoration.
Walter P Moore provides a full range of services for adaptive reuse projects, from structural engineering to restoration and forensics. Our engineers are passionate about this kind of challenge, and work closely with our clients to explore economical, innovative, and sustainable approaches to extend the useful life of existing facilities.
