The deteriorated facade of an historic residence that will be demolished to make way for new housing.  The City of Georgetown Historic and Architectural Review Commission required an archive document of the historic residence at 1111 East 7th Street, Georgetown, which was built between 1906 and 1912, before the house could be demolished (necessitated by substantial deterioration).

The restored original floor of the gymnasium at the historic high school campus in Taylor.  The 1930s gymnasium now serves as an event center with new restroom, bar and kitchen facilities. The campus required a Planned Development for reduced parking minimums, additional permitted uses and amplified sound, and the gymnasium required a building permit for the new restrooms, demo of interior walls, life safety features and commercial kitchen. We wrote the Planned Development documents, negotiated with city staff and presented the Planned Development to Taylor City Council for approval, which was unanimous.

Motorcycles lined up outside the 11th Street Cowboy Bar in Bandera during the 2018 Rumble on the River motorcycle rally.  We are providing an Economic Impact Assessment of Mansfield Park to the Bandera Economic Development Corporation and the Bandera County Commissioners. Mansfield Park is the historic rodeo grounds situated just west of the City of Bandera and owned by Bandera County. It hosts numerous 4-H and community events annually as well as three major rodeos and two motorcycle rallies. The purpose of the Economic Impact Assessment is to evaluate the amount of revenue brought into the county by the events hosted at Mansfield Park and to provide scenarios for increased impacts if capital improvements to the facility and changes to its operations were made, allowing the facility to support increased activity and event attendees.  The project had to be approved by the Bandera Economic Development Corporation (BEDC), the Bandera City Council and the Bandera County Commissioners Court in a series of public hearings. We are reporting to the BEDC and Bandera County Commissioners, and recently released our Interim Report, which you can read  here .

Remaining windows at The Annex at Old Taylor High.  The original windows were removed from the classroom annex at the historic high school in Taylor, and only one window remained. To meet Federal Historic Tax Credit requirements, the replacement windows had to be approved by the US Department of the Interior. We provided extensive measurements, drawings and coordination with window manufacturers.

In-progress installation of a new permeable parking lot for The Annex at Old Taylor High.  Our client needed an amendment to their Planned Development to be able to install a TrueGrid permeable paving system, which would handle the large quantity of stormwater that funnels to this area much more effectively than an asphalt or concrete parking lot would. City staff determined that the system did not meet the parking ordinance so we represented our client through the zoning change process to have the system allowed on the site.
