Prescott Building Renovations

The work includes renovation/restoration of an approximately 15,000 square foot 1904 historic three story brick building, including basement, with wood framing originally constructed as a school.  The program is to convert the building to serve as municipal offices, archival storage for town records, and the archives and collections of the Lancaster Historical Commission, including exhibition and meeting space. The scope of work includes creation of an accessible entrance and installation of an elevator, introduction of new infrastructure systems – mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire suppression sprinkler systems, structural repairs to wood framing, supplemental framing in floor spaces for added loads of records storage, and all work necessary to bring the building to current building code requirements.
