Providence always looks forward to opportunities to be involved on adaptive reuse projects. In a world where we are (sometimes) in all too much of a hurry to tear down and build new; adaptive reuse provides a great opportunity for many of our existing structures to be repurposed and get a second chance with a new service life. Adaptive reuse requires close coordination with the owner and architect to be sure smart decisions are made during the design process in an effort to get the most benefit from the utilization of the International Existing Building Code in the design.

The skilled team at Providence has worked on many successful adaptive reuse projects over the years ranging from hundred year old structures in remote areas to change of use projects in urban areas.

“Anytime we run into a situation on the jobsite that requires a structural engineer’s determination, I immediately call Providence Engineering.  Their responsiveness and understanding of jobsite conditions is unmatched.  It is nice to know that we have a true partner to help us through any challenges we encounter.”
