Repp and Mundt is your source for Retrofitting and Restoration Construction in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio.
Repp and Mundt, Inc. is adept at restoration, both inside and out.
It’s inevitable that structures will age and outgrow their original functions. With changes in technology and lifestyle, construction and design are constantly updated to meet modern demands, and older structures are left in the wake of change. Those sensitive to history may prefer to restore older structures to their former glory; however, costs often make this plan unrealistic. An alternate concept is “adaptive reuse” – a process of retrofitting old buildings for new uses, which allows structures to retain their historic integrity while providing for occupants’ modern needs.
In the pursuit of sustainable development, communities have much to gain from adapting and reusing buildings. Bypassing the wasteful process of demolition and reconstruction alone makes adaptive reuse attractive. Environmental benefits, combined with energy savings and the social advantage of repurposing a place with valued heritage, make adaptive reuse an essential component of sustainable development. Historic buildings provide a glimpse of our past while lending character and serving a new practical purpose in our modern communities. An old factory may become an apartment complex, a rundown church may find new life as a condominium, or an old office building may be transformed into a vibrant retail facility. In many ways, an adaptive-reuse project can invigorate a community by meeting the changing needs of the population.
The opportunities of exercising Repp and Mundt’s masonry and carpentry skills have led us to some very satisfying accomplishments where we have converted old buildings to new uses: stores to offices, old motels to new super complexes.
In the era of stricter zoning restrictions, we invite you to consider allowing us to convert old properties to new uses· as an economical way of solving your space problems.
