Lynchburg Human Services Building

Construction Type: 

In renovating and adding to this former historic warehouse space in downtown Lynchburg, the J.E. Jamerson and Sons’ team was challenged to maintain the historical integrity of the 100-year-old building while bringing the structure up to code and incorporating modern standards. Through our preconstruction capabilities and careful planning, we kept the exposed structural beams as well as the original floors. Stair towers were converted to elevator shafts and the addition, which features a five-story radial curtain wall was seamlessly attached to the original building. This project was partially financed through the sale of "historical tax credits."  This required J.E. Jamerson and Sons to adhere to the strict guidelines of Virginia's Historic Review Board.
