Historic Preservation

Smoak Designs has long held to the concept of "environmental caretaker" in its approach to architectural design. From our inception, we have practiced the "green" concept of adaptive re-use for facilities and inventories.

Within the framework of existing contracts, we have been called on to upgrade hospitals, federal buildings, and courthouses to meet newer and stricter codes, to renovate historic building facades, and to design additions to existing historic structures. At all times, we must consider the aesthetics and the historical integrity of the structure, as well as the historical significance to the surrounding areas.

In our performance on a current GSA IDIQ contract, we are designing roof replacement for the Bootle Federal Building and Courthouse in Macon, Georgia, an historically significant structure built in 1908 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
