Building Analysis

Our Building Assessment Team utilizes its knowledge of how older buildings were built and how they behave to analyze existing buildings for adaptive re-use, rehabilitation, or restoration.

Understanding that each building must be individually assessed, based on its construction, is a guiding principal of our work.  To that end, LHB has an in-house Building Assessment team comprised of individuals that have expertise in architecture, historic preservation and construction technology, cost estimating, building envelope investigations, mechanical and electrical engineering, and restoration and structural engineering.

We provide a breadth of building and structure investigation services including building condition assessments, facility assessments, forensic evaluation, historic preservation, and structural and restoration engineering.

LHB had staff trained in the 2014 Minnesota Enterprise Real Properties (MERP) Facility Condition Assessment (FCA) process and can assist State Agencies in meeting their annual condition reporting requirements.
