Adaptive Reuse of existing structures, Historical Preservation
Preservation of existing structures – whether or not they are of historical significance – is the most effective way to realize sustainable architecture and Carnevale Eustis has developed an expertise for giving new life to old buildings. Reviving and reutilizing existing buildings demonstrates several important points to the community in which the structure is situated… we care about our past, we can repurpose things of value and newer isn't always better.

Carnevale Eustis shares your respect for the past and respects your property in the present. An old factory may become an apartment building… a rundown church may find new life as a restaurant... a school may become an office – the possibilities are endless.
