Historic Preservation Speciality
Historic preservation presents itself with a unique challenge of conservation of the intent while giving new meaning to the design. We have worked with the Urban Design Commission of many projects to create a design that preserves the historic value of the projects while still creating beautiful occupiable space on the interior.
- Creating a Design: Pattern r+d will help refine a schematic design into a construction set for the project. Construction documents begin once you approve the final design. These documents are used for obtaining permits and consist of plans, elevations, and sections, which detail and dimension the scope of work. All building code items are addressed.
- Sustainability Review: Pattern r+d will run energy models and advanced daylight models to test for energy use and daylight penetration in the living spaces to assist in making decisions. These simulations are not a prediction of future performance but solely for making rational decisions. Actual performance will vary based on construction and occupant usage.
- Stick to the Budget: Pattern r+d will work with the contractor through meetings and phone conversations to refine the construction documents to stay within the budget of the owner.
- Get the Permits: Pattern r+d will provide drawings to a plan expeditor and coordinate with the expeditor to get the drawings through review as fast as possible.
- Getting your house built: Pattern r+d will coordinate with the contractor during construction to answer questions about the design and visit the site every two weeks to observe the work and advise the owner of any observed discrepancies with the construction documents.
