In 2012, the City of Taunton hired DBVW to perform an evaluation of their historic City Hall, along with surrounding properties, and to study the feasibility of reusing the fire-damaged historic building as a new City Hall. The project area included Taunton City Hall, the City Hall Annex building and several parking areas. DBVW conducted an exterior and interior condition assessment of the historic buildings, participated in an extensive programming exercise with city departments, and developed conceptual designs for four different re-use options. The selected reuse option involved the restoration of the historic City Hall building and two compatible additions respectful of the original build’s historic character.
