The rehabilitation of adaptive reuse of historic buildings can be a challenge. This manual provides a step by step process that takes the seemingly incomprehensible to the practical and implementable. The manual, formerly published by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, has been used by real estate practitioners, community development corporations, local preservation organizations, and as an applied text book at both the graduate and undergraduate level. The series of forms, checklists, analytical matrices and source references lead the user to make sound and rational decisions throughout the historic rehabilitation process.
