The Lisbon Inn Housing Renovations project involved renovations to an occupied facility, including 19 units and a community area. The historic Lisbon Inn required a major facelift, addressing various needs such as the replacement of a 30-year-old underground storage tank, erosion in the parking area, deteriorated porches, paint failure, and aging windows and doors. The thermal envelope was improved by adding insulation and reducing air infiltration. All major building systems, including the elevator mechanism, HVAC, electrical system, lighting, sprinkler, and fire alarms, were replaced. Additionally, all apartments received new kitchens and baths, along with several cosmetic improvements. Being listed on the National Register of Historic Places, attention to detail and preserving the historic fabric of the properties were critical.
Olivia Beleau of AHEAD praised the project, stating, “Attention to detail and not disturbing the historic fabric of the properties was critical. You all did a great job on that!” This quote from the owner recognizes our commitment to maintaining the historical integrity of the Lisbon Inn while successfully executing the renovations.
Throughout the project, our team diligently focused on preserving the unique architectural features and historical significance of the Lisbon Inn. By carefully integrating modern upgrades while respecting the property’s heritage, we achieved a successful balance between revitalization and preservation. The renovations transformed the Lisbon Inn into a rejuvenated space that meets contemporary standards, enhances energy efficiency, and provides a comfortable and inviting living environment for the residents.
