Abstract

This project is a plan for implementation of a 2009 UMASS Amherst Master’s Thesis to redevelop the site of a mill in Gilbertville, MA. The goal is to take the site, which contains several 19th century buildings that serve a diminished purpose in today’s economy, and turn it into a living, modern, artistic community center. The project team will explore all relevant design considerations and use the associated standards to determine the viability of the plan. Furthermore, the team will design any necessary changes to the structural system of the mill and provide a cost estimate of them all.
