Lee and Sean look over the old plans

Many times when we are doing renovation projects, we are left to our own resources to figure out how the building was designed and built. We were recently across the street from our studio, walking through the basement of one of the buildings at the old Fidelity block, (which will become the new Congress Square project), when we came across some drawings of the buildings from the 1920s. It’s always helpful having existing conditions drawings, so we were thrilled to find them intact. While everyone in the studio has been enjoying looking through them, they are also proving to be a great resource for the team working on Congress Square…in this case, understanding the floor plates is particularly useful. We will be going back to look for more; check back to see what we find.
