Building Moving and Its Purpose (Part Two)

Previously, we began discussing building moving and why many consider it for their home or business. We discussed area redevelopment and zoning can be common reasons, as well as a great proactive measure for areas prone to damage from flooding or natural disasters. In this second part, we will continue to cover a few of the purposes and context behind building moving and how it may benefit you.

Like the work we have done for historic Tampa, one important reason you may see a building being moved is for preservation purposes. Especially for historic structures, moving allows protection and conservation from historic architecture while also allowing modern urban development for the region.

Businesses looking to expand may take advantage of moving to maintain their current facilities and operations while repositioning in a better location. This can also be done with structural improvements or renovations in mind, with moving allowing the building to be placed on better foundations, or other soil and ground considerations. This has both commercial and residential applications, especially for homes on shaky grounds for instances such as earthquakes. Between preservation purposes and unbalanced structures, there are many reasons someone may need to move their building!

We hope you found this second part on the various reasons why people move their buildings to be insightful in your personal or professional life!
