Amo Interurban Renovation

Amo, Indiana
Project Description

Brenner Design conducted a preliminary architectural feasibility study for the renovation and reuse of an existing Interurban building for a proposed community center, museum and library. This historically significant building, built in 1910, became an anchor of revitalization to the small community where it is located. BDI investigated the history of this unique structure and suitability for its intended use. The design team reviewed existing conditions of the interior and exterior of the facility and conducted a window survey for use in obtaining grant approvals. BDI also prepared an estimate of probable costs to renovate and included all findings in the feasibility report. After receiving funding approval by the Indiana Department of Commerce, and the State Historic Preservation Office, Brenner Design was selected for completion of construction documents and construction administration. The building was entirely renovated according to State Historic guidelines.

Completed in April 2005.
