It was a unique challenge to create a corporate headquarters for Bayada Home Health Care in an 1858 home while undertaking a complete interior historic home renovation. R. Craig Lord Construction Company, located in Moorestown, NJ, was ready for the challenge. First, a selective demolition uncovered clues to the past, but with only minimal original features remaining, the challenge began. A yearlong historic architectural investigation followed by a full demolition and almost a year of construction culminated in a historically impeccable renovation, despite only having twenty percent of the original features present at the start. The result is a stunning and appropriate historic renovation blending period appropriate conference rooms and offices while maintaining commercial building codes and integrating modern conveniences. Key elements included: a three-story staircase with an octagonal oculus, sixteen room renovations including a Kitchen and three Bathrooms, custom woodwork and plaster, and a third floor with an open floor plan, and a rear entry ramp entering to a two-story foyer.
The completed rooms show the detailed work done and the before photos show the condition of the room before demolition.
