A building renovation is a transformative moment in the life of a structure. Adaptive reuse can convert a useless building into vibrant space for offices and retail – sustainability at its most basic level. Renovation of a building envelope and entry gives a building a fresh new face on the world. DBA-W provides owners and property managers with sensible solutions to giving an old building new life.

At 80 William Street in Wellesley MA we transformed a dated single-tenant building into a modern, inviting multi-tenant one. A bright, fresh lobby capitalized on the building’s assets – great light in a wonderful, open atrium. A 45,000 SF former shoe factory at 38 Everett Street in Allston MA was renewed as office and retail space with environmentally sustainable solutions. Two tenant spaces were accredited LEED Silver and Gold. A new entry and complete reconstruction of the building envelope breathed new life into 201 Burlington Road in Bedford MA. New elevators and an updated bridge connection between the north and south buildings ideally positioned this building for new leasing opportunities.
