Haley Mechanical Building

An abandoned industrial site in Dexter, Michigan found new life when the owners of Haley Mechanical purchased the blighted building with the intention of transforming it into their new offices, workshop and equipment storage facility. ARK was commissioned to lead this adaptive reuse effort, which involved working closely with the owner and township planning department and coordinating the design with engineers. ARK analyzed the existing structure to determine a strategy for removal and repair of structurally unsound portions of the building. From there, the owner's vision was fully designed and brought to life in the form of a new 8,000 square-foot revitalization.
