The Robert Fulton School was originally built in 1917, designed by prominent Virginia architect William Leigh Carneal. Any historic renovation requires a bit of creative thinking, and a full infrastructure overhaul brought us many unforeseen challenges. The finished project will include apartments, studios, office space, a restaurant, and more, and the changing portfolio of tenants brought similar changes to the original work order. New roof/gutter systems, finishing a new attic floor, and adding an elevator required some sections of the building to be completely opened. To support the new occupancy of the building, structural elements were added and/or replaced in the basement. When the project is finished, Fulton Hill will provide a rewarding live/work space for the next 100 years.
