Connectivity to Historic Mill Ruins.

The City of Roswell partnered with Macallan on phase three of its Old Mill Park Trail Extension Project.

The project included the expansion of the existing trail system to incorporate pedestrian and ADA trail access through boardwalks and overlooks. This will allow additional connectivity to the historic mill ruins south of the covered bridge at Old Mill Park at 95 Mill View Avenue.

Additionally, an elevated boardwalk allows visitors to explore a section of the Roswell Mill ruins featuring the old turbine that powered the Mill directly above the site (currently the Roswell Mill Club and other offices) until 1975. The area where the boardwalk and trails are constructed dates back to 1839 when the original structures were constructed.

1800’s bungalow for public use.

The Historic Bodiford House at 4355 Marietta Street was built in the late 1800’s and included exterior and interior renovations to restore the home for use as a public facility to house the Seven Springs Museum. A garage/storage outbuilding was added to the rear of the property.

It underwent a thorough rehabilitation including new mechanical systems, ADA ramp, fire egress, and bathroom upgrades. Interior finishes were restored and retained, including the staircase, fireplaces, wood floors and ceilings, plaster walls, light fixtures, kitchen cabinets and equipment. A non-original wall bisecting the hallway was removed and the exterior remained largely as it was, with repairs to the porch.

Dismantle of a Historic Barn.

Macallan was contracted by Gwinnett County to systematically dismantle the Historic Lee Farm Barn and reconstruct the barn at the Gwinnett County Environmental & Heritage Center. 

The project also involved the deconstruction of a historic home which included asbestos remediation work completed by Hibernia Enterpises. All work was also required to comply with current Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation and Guidelines for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings.

Along with the Chesser-Williams House, it serves as an event facility.

Adaptive reuse of historic home.

Clarkston City Hall Annex is a 4,500 SF renovation and adaptive reuse of the historic Morris Family House in Clarkston, GA. This property was donated to the city by the family and was originally built in the late 1800’s. This conversion had to allow for ADA accessibility and include all of the modern conveniences that are necessary for a government building, including its first ever HVAC system.

This project included a high level of coordination with the City of Clarkston, Bizot Architects, the Owners Representative and the Morris family to ensure that the integrity of the home remained. This project was recently awarded Excellence in Rehabilitation from the Georgia Trust.
