This 1903 Carnegie Library Building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Adaptive reuse of the building as a planning and building permit center will exemplify historic preservation and green design to the citizens and builders who come in to apply for permits.

Prior to design, we provided programming and layout for two alternative new uses, and wrote a Master Plan Report (click HERE to download) for the City Council to use in determining the best use.

Our design includes a full slate of upgrades to building systems (heating, ventilation, electric) which were removed during seismic upgrade and waterproofing.

Our 3D BIM for this project has beenfeatured on several training events for ArchiCAD, as well as a test case for plan-checking software for BIM currently in development.
