Client: City of Muscatine, Iowa
HBK partnered with architects John Shaw and Douglas Steinmetz for the City of Muscatine’s Downtown Revitalization Project. The project included field research and property survey to evaluate impacts and influences on the historic nature of the project, full analysis of historic properties, and communicating openly with City staff and stakeholders. HBK staff evaluated the site for locations to implement sustainable stormwater practices and designed public improvements for those spaces. Research was conducted into local, state and federal funding sources to provide “green” practices. HBK provided topographic and utility survey for civil site work, developed conceptual drawings incorporating site improvements as well as architectural façade rehabilitation, collaborated on site and architectural concepts to create preliminary design drawings and specifications, and provided project management and construction overview.
