United Professional Advisors House to Office Conversion

United Professional Advisors (UPA) is a financial advisor firm dedicated to making a meaningful positive difference in the financial lives of its clients, with expertise in the areas of individual planning, estate planning, business planning, employee benefits, retirement planning, financial consulting, and investment strategies and management.
In 2016, the organization contracted Aubertine and Currier (A&C) to create a design for converting an existing house into an office building.
A&C created a floor plan for the first and second floor, as well as a conceptual plan and exterior elevations for the entry addition and porch. A&C personnel met with local code enforcement officials to review all applicable codes, rules and regulations, and provided construction documents such as dimensioned floor plans, exterior elevations, foundation plan and details for the entry and porch, sections and framing details for the entry and porch, window details and sizes, and roof plan and details for a new roofing system.
The end result is an office building and parking lot area that bears no resemblance to the original house design.
