restoration. adaptive reuse.
A variety of terms can be used to describe a construction project that is not brand new. It’s a building you’re fixing up and updating to be put back into functional status and use, rather than tearing it down and starting from scratch.
Regardless of what you call this type of construction, we can help put retrofit within reach. That’s because we have the products you need to bring existing buildings up to date while also making them energy-efficient, durable, healthy and safe. We’ve also got the people you can rely on to get the job done right.
"Sensible retrofits and renovations (are) an extremely impactful strategy in reducing global carbon emissions from the building sector."
Daniel Overbey, AIA, NCARB, LEED Fellow, WELL AP, Director of Sustainability for Browning Day
"There are 5 million+ commercial buildings in the U.S. consisting of 72 billion sq ft of floor space. Cost-effective retrofit potential remains for over 80% of these buildings."
Kermit Baker, Chief Economist for the AIA
