Pipestone Senior Center Conditions Assessment
Project Type: Conditions Assessment, Pipestone, MN
Client: City of Pipestone
LHB was selected by the City of Pipestone to prepare a conditions assessment report to guide the maintenance and restoration of their senior center building. The rose-hued quartz masonry building was designed as a Carnegie Library by Sioux Falls architect Joseph Swartz and completed in 1904. It was converted to the City’s senior center in the later 1970s.
The building is currently undergoing serious issues with its mass masonry construction. LHB prepared their condition assessment with that in mind. Following the completion of the report, LHB has remained in contact with Pipestone to advise the city on next steps and to develop a realistic phasing plan to implement improvements in the best possible order.
